A 10-year-old girl has died after being seriously injured in a fire that killed her younger brother and critically injured their grandmother.
   Hannah Rose Casillas died of smoke inhalation just after 1 p.m. Monday, a spokeswoman at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa said. She also had burns over 75 percent of her body.
   Her brother, Quentin Diego Casillas, 2, was killed in the Sunday morning fire, city spokesman Keith Sterling said.
   Peg Lewis, the children's aunt, said the girl apparently got out of the burning house but went back in to save her brother.
   The children's grandmother, Carol Ann Thomas, 57, was taken to Hillcrest Medical Center in Tulsa, where she was listed in critical condition with lung damage and burns to about 25 percent of her body. The mother of the children was treated at the scene for minor burns to her hand.
   The cause of the fire has not been established. The home did not have a working smoke detector.
