Authorities believe they may have enough evidence to charge a mother who’s 4 children were trapped inside a house where a fire started inside the house. The mother was the only one that got away without injury. Her 1 year old died.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A 1-year-old girl was killed in an explosion and fire Monday night in Colorado Springs and authorities said they have enough evidence to charge the child’s mother with the death.
Police received a 911 call reporting a possible explosion in the 3200 block of Galena Court at 10:01 p.m. and the first officers to arrive pulled four children from the house: a 3-year-old girl, a 5-year-old boy, an 8-year-old boy and a 9-year-old boy.
The 3-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy were transported by ambulance to The Children’s Hospital in Aurora because weather conditions prevented a medical helicopter transfer.
The 8-year-old and 9-year-old boys were reported to be in critical condition. The 5-year-old boy was in guarded condition, according to a press release.
