A mother and her two children were killed early this morning in a fire at a mobile home in Wallburg in northern Davidson County.

Authorities say the fire started around 2 a.m. at a home in the K&T mobile home park off N.C. 109 near Wallburg Elementary School.

The father tried to save his family. He had to be restrained by firefighters so he wouldn't go back inside the burning mobile home, according to WXII-TV.

The father suffered burns and was taken to an area hospital for treatment. Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the fire.
