Firefighter lost three kids in Pennsylvania day care fire

Firefighter lost three kids in Pennsylvania day care fire”

The Lawrence Park Fire Department said on its Facebook page Sunday that it would be launching a donation campaign to support Jones.

Five children, ranging in age from 8 months to 7 years old, were killed in the blaze.

Luther Jones' children were at the Harris Family Day Care in Erie overnight when the deadly fire ripped through the home at 1:15 a.m., according to Erie News Now.

"So we are all at a loss, trying to figure out how this happened", Lockett-Slupski said.

Two other children, aged 12 and 17, managed to jump out of the window, sustaining minor injuries.

Santone said a neighbor was also injured.

Widomski told the newspaper that the fire appeared to have started in the living room area on the first floor.

Authorities on Monday were investigating the cause of a fire that swept through a home daycare in Erie, Pennsylvania, killing five children trapped inside.

Santone said investigators were "leaning toward an electrical fire" as the cause of the blaze but had not yet concluded their probe.

A woman who also lives at the residence was flown to UPMC Mercy for treatment, Chief Fire Inspector John Widomski told the newspaper, which reported that the injured woman is the owner of the day care.

The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership, a non-profit, lists the address of the home as the Harris Family Daycare.

In thIs photo released by the Erie Fire department, firefighters work to put out a house fire in Erie, Pennsylvania early in the morning on August 11, 2019. However, a later note on the inspection did call out some safety concerns, including "ashes and cigarette or cigar butts" found in "a child care space, play space or food preparation area".

The childcare provider, presumably Harris, was said to have promised to 'make sure it will be cleaned up and remain that way'. "I will make sure that they are turned closed when not in use".

Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call Erie police Detective Sgt. Michael Hertel at 814-870-1260 or Detective David Walker at 814-870-1122.
