HAMMOND, Ind. (WLS) -- The parents of three young children killed in a house fire are now wanted for their deaths.

Warrants have been issued for Andre and Michele Young.

Each are charged with neglect in the Hammond, Ind. fire that happened in January 2014.

Two children were rescued but Alexis, Dasani and Jayden Young did not make it.

Prosecutors say all five children were alone in the home at the time of the fire.

Fire investigators say a propane heater used to heat was the cause.
