Two young girls have died in a horrible fire.

The one-year-old boy and the two-year-old boy were killed when the fire broke out in a house in Geelong East, Victoria, just before 8 am on Thursday.

A six-month-old baby was also rushed to the hospital for smoke inhalation.

Victoria police said in a statement that it is understood that the fire broke out inside a room in the house on Loch Street.

The Arson Squad is investigating, with the exact cause still to be established.

However, fire at this stage is not being treated as suspicious.

More to come.
