An El Paso man is hospitalized in critical condition after a house fire that killed his wife and three grandchildren. A nursing supervisor at University Medical Center in Lubbock says 50-year-old Luis Matos was in the critical intensive care unit Tuesday, after being moved from the burn unit.

The man's wife and one grandson died hours after the fire early Friday. The El Paso Fire Department on Monday confirmed a 1i0-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy also died over the weekend.

The cause of the blaze is sought. Fire investigators say the home did not have a smoke alarm.
