(WTLV)  Three children and their grandmother perished when a fire tore through a Jacksonville, Florida  mobile home Tuesday evening.

The victims have been identified as 9-month-old Janet Fowler, 2-year-old Rachel Fowler, 4-year-old Richard Jr. “Bubba” Fowler and their grandmother Shelia Swearingen, 53, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Hattie Fowler, 6, survived the fatal fire. Hattie was transported to Wolfson Children’s Hospital after being pulled to safety by 13-year-old witness Robert Pritchard.

PRITCHARD said HE DID HIS BEST, BUT WISHES HE COULD HAVE DONE MORE.

“There’s just big old flames,” he recalls.  “Right when I walked out the whole house just caught on fire, I couldn’t go back in.”
