HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) _ Authorities say a father of three who died in a fire may have gone back into the family’s burning house in Hamden searching for his children.

Fire officials said they believe that the man, in his 50s, went back into the house Thursday morning to look for the children, who had already escaped from a second-floor window.

His name was not immediately released.

One firefighter was injured.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
