Six siblings,including two sisters,were charred to death after fire engulfed their house in a remote area in Darjeeling district. The incident took place late Thursday night at a small settlement close to Mirik when the hut caught fire from a lantern. The children,aged between two and 12 years,were alone in the house when the incident took place. Remoteness of the area led to delay in rescue operations.
