An overnight fire razed a tent used as a temporary shelter by survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, killing a woman and five of her children, including a 4-month-old girl, officials in a central Philippine city devastated by the massive storm said Wednesday.The fire was caused by a kerosene lamp and quickly consumed the canvass tent just after midnight Tuesday, Tacloban city disaster management officer Derrick Anido said.Anido said the city was still trying to recover from the devastation wrought by the typhoon, which barreled through the central Philippines, killing at least 6,300 people and displacing more than 4 million.
