New Delhi - Ten members of a family, including six children, were burnt to death when their house caught fire in north India on Saturday, police said.

The fire broke out when the family was asleep at their home in the city of Agra, 200 kilometres south of New Delhi.

"Two couples and six children below the ages of 14 died in the blaze that completely gutted the house," area police chief RS Yadav said by telephone.

Police are investigating what caused the fire. A preliminary inquiry suggests the fire was caused by an electric short-circuit, Yadav said.
