8 killed in New Orleans warehouse fire

NEW ORLEANS Fire officials said the victims had been burning wood in a barrel to stay warm.

Firefighters said they could not tell the ages or genders of those who died because their bodies were so badly burned.

The fire in the Upper Ninth Ward also killed two dogs.

Two people survived by escaping through a window.

Temperatures were just below freezing when the flames broke out in the early morning, which is below average for the city this time of year.
