Police: 2-year-old boy dies in White Township fire

Authorities say a 2-year-old boy was killed and two adults were injured in a Warren County house fire yesterday.

The fire broke out in a home on Route 46 near the Pennsylvania border in White Township. Police say the house was fully involved when firefighters arrived. Firefighters say they tried to conduct a search of the home, but were driven back by the flames.

A man who identified himself to News 12 New Jersey as the boy's father would only say, "I have to make funeral arrangements for my son."

Officials say the two adults were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities are still working to determine how the fire started.
