Grand Rapids – Authorities say a 2-year-old girl has died following a fire at a home in western Michigan.

Grand Rapids Fire Department Chief John Lehman says the fire was reported about 7:30 p.m. Thursday and the child’s parents tried to get her from a bedroom, but the flames were too intense. The name of the child wasn’t immediately released.

WOOD-TV reports the house that burned had two apartments in it.

The Grand Rapids Press reports two adults and four children were at home at the time and a smoke detector alerted them to the fire.

Lehman says one firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion but was expected to be OK. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
