Johannesburg - Three children have burned to death on a farm in Dealsville in the early hours of Monday, Free State paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the fire began shortly after midnight.

Paramedics and firefighters arrived on the scene to find the property completely engulfed in flames.

"After the fire was extinguished they found the bodies of three children aged between seven and thirteen burned beyond recognition," Botha said.

Police are investigating the fire.

    The title of this article is misleading, how do we know they were killed? Should the article not be "Kids die in farm fire."?

    Sad, very sad. Five innocent lives lost this weekend due to fires. Can bet my bottom dollar these were caused by some ignorant individuals tossing their butts around. When are people going to learn that there are consequences to their careless actions?

    It is so sad. Stories like this always make me realize how fortunate i am that nothing has happened to my little boy so far and what those kids' families must be going through. Rest in piece, little souls.
