CHICAGO (AP) – Police in Chicago say three children and a man have died in a fire at a Chicago apartment building that appears to have been deliberately set after a domestic dispute.

The Police Department emailed a statement saying a 3-month-old was pronounced dead at a hospital and two other children and a man were found dead later at the scene.

The fire began around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday in a three-story building in the South Chicago neighborhood.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says a preliminary investigation indicates a person returned to the building after a domestic dispute and set fire to the rear porch.

He says officers are searching for a “person of interest wanted for questioning.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
