Three-Year-Old Girl Dies In Hospital From Burns After House Fire

Police say a three-year-old girl badly burnt in a house fire in South Australia last week has died in hospital.

The girl was flown to the Royal Adelaide Hospital on Friday after the blaze at the Port Augusta address.

Two other children were in the home at the time, with a four-year-old boy suffering minor burns and taken to the Port Augusta Hospital.

A neighbour who burst into the building to help save the children was also admitted for treatment after suffering smoke inhalation.
