Two teens die in Southaven house fire

Authorities said two teenage brothers have died in a house fire in Southaven.

According to DeSoto County Coroner Jeff Pounders, 14-year-old A.J. Hardrick and 13-year-old Devin Hardrick were trapped inside the home yesterday.

Pounders said another relative tried to get the boys out of the burning home when the fire was reported at 2:40 a.m. but could not reach them in time.

Pounders said the boys possibly died from smoke inhalation. Both were students at DeSoto Central Middle School.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and autopsies have been ordered.
