4-year-old twins killed in Dyersburg house fire

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) – A Dyersburg neighborhood is devastated after twin girls were killed in a house fire.

Twins Martini and Martina Faulcon turned four Monday. Early Wednesday morning, their family's house on Findley Street in Dyersburg went up in flames.

Their brother, 5-year-old Winfred Faulcon Jr., is recovering at Le Bonheur. His condition is said to be improving. The twins died at the hospital.

Neighbor Telly Weatherspoon says Martini and Martina were "just good kids, you know. I just can't believe. It's unbelievable."

Martini and Martini were "the cutest things you ever did see," said neighbor Brandi Dick. Dick lives two doors down and says her children played with the Faulcon twins daily.

"I don't think it really has sunk in yet. It'll get worse when they get back to their routine and they don't come out to play, you know."

The cause of the fire is still unknown. The Dyersburg fire chief says they are still investigating.
