One grandmother had died and three others were hospitalized after a house fire in Houston.

The fire started around noon. 5 a.m. in the Northwest Harris County neighborhood of Houston. The fire was confined to a room when firefighters arrived, Fox 26 reports.

When the fire started, the grandmother, identified as Tammy Mutan, was at her daughter’s home with her two grandchildren, her daughter and son-in-law. Mutan’s daughter was able to escape unharmed. It was not the others.

When authorities arrived, the 53-year-old grandmother was found dead inside the home, while the father and his two children, ages 8 and 10, were found outside the home without responding, according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.
