In this Letter we study spontaneous generation of triple photon states in optical fibers by third order spontaneous downconversion. Using a semiclassical approach we derive an explicit expression for the triple photons generation efficiency as a function of fiber parameters. We show that optical fibers with well suited index profiles and standard outer diameters could be the key component of future triple photons sources.
