Among the children are six-month-old Tulsi, seven-year-old Adarsh, and 10-year-old Udai, Assistant Divisional Officer (ADO) AK Sharma said.

The ADO said that the three were siblings and their parents -- father Udai Chaudhary (33) and mother Muskan (26) -- also died in the fire.

The others who died in the fire include Ram Chander Jha (65), Sudarya Devi (58), Sanju Jha (36) and Guddan, the mother-in-law of the owner. They were declared brought dead by Dr Vijay at Sanjay Gandhi hospital here.

Three family members of the owner, including his wife, daughter, and niece also sustained injures in the fire. They have been identified as Pooja, Aradhya and Somya, respectively, and are admitted to a private hospital near the spot of fire.

Officials said that the owner, Amarnath Jha had gone to Haridwar for some business when the fire took place. The fire has been doused.

This comes merely a month after as many as 43 people died in a major fire tragedy at a factory in the Anaj Mandi area of Old Delhi.
