EL RENO, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in central Oklahoma have identified three children who were killed in a New Year’s Day house fire.
El Reno Fire Chief Kent Lagaly said Tuesday the victims of Monday’s fire were 4-year-old Amylah Dawn Redbird, 3-year-old Gunner Ray Redbird and 1-year-old Mayley Jean Redbird.
Lagaly says authorities were alerted to the fire around 6 a.m. and that when firefighters arrived, others were already carrying the three children out of the burning house. Efforts to revive them failed and they were pronounced dead at a hospital.
Lagaly says the fire was contained to one room inside the structure. At least two adults were also inside the home when the fire started.
