CLEVELAND -- The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has ruled the deaths of two children in a house fire last month as homicides.

The medical examiner says Peaches Christburg, 2, and Glacia Ramsey, 7, died of smoke inhalation.

The children died after being pulled from a home on Kipling Avenue on December 12.

A babysitter who escaped told police a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt forced his way into the house and forced her into the bathroom. The sitter says she then smelled smoke in the home and called police.

No arrests have been made.
