Posted: Updated:

CHILLUM, Md. (AP) - Fire officials are identifying a Prince George's County couple and their twin grandchildren who were killed in a house fire.
    
Officials say firefighters called to Knollbrook Drive in Chillum early Tuesday pulled four people from the burning home.
    
At a news conference, Fire Chief Marc Bashoor said the grandparents died at the scene and the twins were taken to a hospital, where they died. He identified the children as 2-year-old Anna and Israel Omijie and their grandparents as 55-year-old Caroline and 63-year-old Samson Omogbo.
    
Bashoor says the twins' mother jumped from a second-floor window, but her injuries are not life-threatening.
    
Bashoor says there's no sign of a smoke alarm in the home. He says the cause is under investigation, but so far there's no evidence of foul play.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
