(Riverdale, MD) — Two Riverdale children who died in a fire were reportedly home alone when flames broke out. Five-year-old Jordan Farrell died shortly after the Friday fire. His brother, seven-year-old Jai Farrell, died on Sunday. Neighbors like Pat Stancil say the boys’ father returned home to find the apartment on fire. Prince George’s County Fire and Rescue spokesman Mark Brady says unattended cooking is to blame. Brady says the fire was small, but it generated a lot of smoke, and both boys suffered severe smoke inhalation. So far, no charges have been filed.
