The fire reportedly occurred overnight in the early morning hours of Saturday, when the family of five slept inside their Spring-area home.
Police said a mother and daughter could not escape the blaze, perishing from their injuries at the property in the 2000 block of Pebworth Place.
According to a statement on the situation, “a Precinct 4 deputy constable who broke a window to get inside the home” reportedly rescued a father and two sons.
Reports show survivors received a transport to Memorial Hermann with injuries related to smoke-inhalation; the father suffered second-degree burns on 40 percent of his body.
Authorities said they are now investigating what potentially caused the fire.
