Boy and girl killed in Gary fire

Two children died after a fire broke out at an apartment building in northwest Indiana Sunday.

Two other children, identified by the Lake County Coroner's Office as 4-year-old Khristopher Gober and 2-year-old Kailani Gober, died in the fire.

Kristopher Gober, 4, and Kailani Gober, 2, of the 5800 block of Forest Court, were killed when a fire broke out in their apartment on the same block, according to the Lake County Coroner.

"When we told the boy to jump, he jumped, and we just crowded him in", neighbor Joseph Payne said. Neighbors held the edges of the blanket and told the child to jump. "It was insane", neighbor Earl Stiff said.

Firefighters fought the blaze for four hours. "It is always hard because most of the guys and women on our department are parents, grandparents so loss of a life is never a good thing, especially when you are trying all you can to save a life", said Gary Fire Department Chief Mike Jones. "It took three tries". The boys who made the rescue say they felt like they had to do something because the fire department wasn't doing its job. The apartment building in the Miller neighborhood has 53 units. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
