Alabama house fire leaves multiple dead
FORT PAYNE, Ala. — Three children and two adults died in what appeared to be an accidental fire at a mobile home in rural north Alabama, a coroner said Friday.
DeKalb County Coroner Bruce Wilson said the dead include a woman, her three young children and the woman’s boyfriend. No names were released immediately, and Wilson said autopsies were being conducted.
The family had a wood stove and other heaters inside their home, Wilson said, and the fire appeared to have been an accident caused by one of the heaters.
