Two children died in a house fire after being left alone by their parents in Michigan.
The brothers, 9 and 11 years old, were caught and killed by the fire in the city of Grosse Pointe, near Detroit.
The boys' mother got out to do the shopping. Their father was in a completely new job on his first day.
Neighbors heard the children scream, but they couldn't do anything. The entire community would be shocked
Neighbors heard the boys calling for help, but they could not leave the house
When firefighters finally entered the house, both brothers were unable to work
The children were in a bedroom above the house when the fire broke out.
It is believed that the children called their mother on her cell phone and hurried back home immediately, but she couldn't go back in to save her sons.

A thorough investigation will now take place to discover exactly what the fire called

It is believed that the fire started in the kitchen, but a full investigation is needed to find out the exact cause.
In a tragic turn of fate, the boys would have been in school on another day, but their primary school had a late start on Monday morning.
Fire crews arrived very quickly, but there was nothing that could be done
A ladder was used to reach the upper room where the boys were hiding
The police do not yet release the identity of the children. An email with their names went to some in the Grosse Pointe Public Schools district,
