A fire has claimed the lives of three members of a Mississippi family, state media outlets reported.

Early Sunday morning firefighters in Itawamba County were called to an address on Antioch Road where a mobile home was on fire, WTVA reported.

The television station said the local coroner identified the dead as Bryan Sides, 26, Dwana Sides, 40, and Breylan Sides, 11.
