Emergency services at the scene in Worsley

Two further men aged 18 and 20 have also been arrested on suspicion of murder.

A Manchester Fire and Rescue spokesman said: "We were called at 4.58am to a fire at a mid-terrace house on Jackson Street".

There are also reports that two teenagers managed to escape the blaze.

An eight-year-old boy and seven-year-old girl died later in hospital after Demi was declared dead at the scene.

Greater Manchester police confirmed that they were treating the blaze as suspicious, and a murder investigation was under way.

Three children have died and a three-year-old and a mother are seriously ill in hospital after a suspected arson attack in Salford.
