Almost 80 firefighters responded to a burning home early Thursday, but they do nothing for a man and two children, who died on the scene.

Fire officials say a man and two children have died after a house fire in Glenarden, Md.

Prince George's County fire officials say the man and three girls ages 10, 8 and 5 weren't breathing and had no pulse when they were pulled from the burning home on the 8600 block of Leslie Avenue early Thursday morning.

Paramedics were able to restore a pulse for one of the girls, but the man and the two other girls were pronounced dead after arriving at a hospital.

A woman and an 8-year-old child were able to escape the home before firefighters arrived and were less seriously injured.

The fire broke out around 4 a.m. at the single-family home. Prince George's County Deputy Fire Chief Benjamin Barksdale says investigators are focusing on the front portion of the home, especially the living room area as a possible source of the fire
