The children, ages 3 and 8, are both in critical condition at Boston’s Children’s Hospital, according to various sources. Salem Fire Department spokesperson Rich Thomas described the injuries to the children as “serious.”

The Aunt of Tanicia Goodwin spoke with the Boston Herald shortly after the news of the assault and blaze broke locally, expressing that while she hasn’t spoken to her niece in months, they were close. “I can’t speak right, I’m too discombobulated,” she said. “I have no idea what happened. I know it was a flash on the news and everybody is calling me.”

The fire department responded to the blaze just after 9 p.m. last evening, taking a flight of stairs to the seventh floor to try and extinguish the flames. One child was found inside Goodwin’s apartment while the other was found at an apartment next door. The fire left nearly 50 residents without their quarters for the night as detectives investigated the building alongside fire department officials to determine the cause of the blaze.

Speaking on the Salem Fire Department’s efforts to save the children from the flames, Thomas was generous with his praise. “It was definitely a great rescue,” he said. “Just to find the right apartment.”
