CPS investigating after 8 children left at Dallas fire station

Posted: Updated:

Eight children were left at a Dallas fire station on Sunday morning, triggering an investigation by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

Dallas police say the children lived with their mother, 31-year-old Taniah Peoples. They lived in a duplex on Marsalis Avenue in Oak Cliff, which was owned by New Life Church in Dallas.

Around midnight Saturday, two women in the area say they saw Peoples leave the home where the children were left alone. They picked them up and took them to Fire Station 33.

Firefighters took care of the children, ranging in ages two to 12, for about an hour until authorities showed up.

Social workers at CPS have been able to reach Peoples, who reportedly said she left them with a friend who disappeared and left the children alone. CPS is trying to verify that statement.

The children are uninjured and in foster care while the investigation continues.
