Three young boys perished in a Florida house fire over the weekend after cops say their grandfather's ex-girlfriend set fire to his home.

Investigators say 49-year-old Williams set the home on fire intentionally. Rescuers got the call in the pre-dawn hours Saturday.
"It's unthinkable. You know I can't imagine what it would be like if my children died in a fire," a neighbor told WINK.
Their grandfather was pulled from the home and is reportedly recovering in a hospital.
A memorial with balloons and bears now decorates the burned out home, where the kids were visiting their grandfather for the weekend.
"It’s almost incomprehensive that a human being could do something like that, knowing that there were occupants in the house," a neighbor said.
