Seven Clouse children including a 7-month-old infant perished in a fast-moving fire Tuesday night, while their mother milked cows and their father dozed in a milk truck down the road.

A farmhouse near Blain, Pennsylvania, is seen early on March 9 after a fire during the night killed seven children while their mother was in a barn milking cows and their father was taking a nap in a milk delivery truck, according to a state trooper. No cause or origin of the fire has been determined but a relative said the blaze may have started in the kitchen, where the family used a propane heater.
Pennsylvania state trooper Tom Pinkerton tells TODAY that one child survived as the mother of the family frantically tried to rescue her children from the engulfed home
