18-month-old boy dies in northeast Detroit house fire
Detroit — An 18-month-old boy died Monday in a fire after being trapped in a home on Detroit's northeast side, officials said.
The Detroit Fire Department was dispatched at 11:41 a.m. to the 14200 block of Camden. Family members told firefighters a baby was trapped in a back bedroom, said Deputy Fire Commissioner Dave Fornell in an email.
"Companies pushed in, knocked down the fire and found an 18-month old male, face down on the floor, deceased," Fornell said.
An investigation is ongoing to determine a cause of the fire, but it is believed to be accidental, Fornell said.
