A fire on Fri­day that killed a tod­dler and crit­i­cally in­jured two oth­ers ap­pears to have been sparked by a recharg­ing hover­board, author­i­ties in Penn­syl­va­nia said. One vic­tim jumped from a sec­ond-floor porch roof to es­cape the blaze. Two other fe­males were res­cued by lad­der from the ground, as was a man. The Le­high County coro­ner’s of­fice said 3-year-old Ashanti Hughes was pro­nounced dead just after 11.30am on Satur­day at Le­high Val­ley Hos­pi­tal-Cedar Crest. Two girls re­main hos­pi­talised in crit­i­cal con­di­tion.
