ROOKLYN PARK, Md. (WJLA/AP) - The wife of a local church pastor, their 17-year-old son, and a neighbor died Tuesday in a two-alarm Brooklyn Park house fire.


The Anne Arundel County Fire Department said they pulled 39-year-old Lettitia Sinnah and her 17-year-old son, Sundima Sinnah, from the home in the 100 block of Hilltop Road around 2:40 a.m.
Firefighters also pulled out their neighbor, 45-year-old Christopher Rickman. All three were pronounced dead after being taken to hospitals in critical condition.

Fire Capt. Russ Davies said Lettitia Sinnah died trying to save her son, and that Rickman died trying to save them both.
Davies said the woman's husband, pastor Samuel Sinnah, and the couple's 20-year-old son survived the fire.
Firefighters said Lettitia Sinnah had initially made it out but went back in to save Sundima, who was on the second floor.
Authorities and witnesses said that Rickman died trying to rescue his neighbors from the blaze.
"He died trying to save somebody, and my son will always be a hero for me," said Rickman's mother, Rose Rickman.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
