Han-Sur-Lesse, Belgium -

A man and his four children have died in a house fire in southeastern Belgium.

Firefighters were alerted to the blaze in the middle of the night but were faced with a home engulfed in flames when they arrived at the site in Han, about 80 kilometres south of Brussels.

Local firefighter chief Francois Bodart told RTL network early on Monday that the mother and a family friend were able to escape the fire but had to be hospitalised for burns and breathing difficulties.

The children were two boys and two girls, ranging in age from 2 to 11. - Sapa-AP
