WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - A woman and her 3-year-old daughter have been found dead outside a burning storage room at a Winter Haven motel.

Authorities say 25-year-old Priyakumari Master and her daughter, Mahi Bimal Master, were found outside the flaming storage room at the Camellia Motel around 7:20 a.m. Tuesday.

The woman's infant son was seriously hurt and was flown to a hospital.

Authorities say the victims were the wife and child of the co-owner of the motel, where the family lived.

Cause of death has yet to be determined.

A police officer on patrol discovered the scene and put out the fire, which did not spread beyond the storage room.
