8-year-old dies trying to save brother in NYC fire

NEW YORK The witnesses say Tyanthony Duckette had escaped Thursday morning's fire at the Queens duplex with his grandmother and older sister. But when he realized his 17-month-old brother, Daniel Wilson, was still inside, he ran back into the house.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Fire officials said Friday they are considering whether a light fixture came in contact with combustible material.
