3 Telangana Students Die after House Catches Fire at Collierville in America
Four people are dead, one person was taken to Le Bonheur and another to Regional One after a deadly house fire this morning.
CFD has determined that the people were trapped inside the burning house.

Two boys and a girl -- ages 14, 15, and 17 -- are all dead. The mother was identified by Collierville Bible Church as Kari Coudriet, 46.
A man and his son -- identified as Danny and Cole Coudriet -- were taken to the hospital. They are both expected to be okay.
The church identified the three teens killed as Sharron, Joy and Aaron Naik.
Collierville Mayor Stan Joyner said the entire community will mourn the loss.
“It’s horrible,” he said. “Obviously, our hearts go out to the families and the neighbours. I know it’s a traumatic situation for all that are involved.”
Investigators say the call came in at 10:53 Sunday night, the first fire engine arrived on the scene at 10:57 p.m.
The fire marshal says they are still investigating. They told to press it could take days to determine what caused the flames.
