Fatal Fire in Verona
GALLATIN COUNTY, Ky. (WKRC) -- Crews are on the scene of a fatal fire in Gallatin County Tuesday afternoon near the Boone County line.
The fire broke out in a mobile home around 3p.m. on the 1800 block of Roberts Road.
The Sheriff of Gallatin County was one of the first ones on the scene.
"At this time we have confirmed that, yes, a 23-month-old infant son of the people that lived here was deceased."
The mother of the child left the mobile home to call for help at a neighbors house when the fire started. Police arrived on the scene and tried to enter the home to save the child but were unsuccessful.
A 3-year-old boy was also in the home when the fire started. The mother and 3-year-old were able to escape through a side window. The hallway, where the fire started, kept the mother from being able to reach the 23-month-old.
It is unknown at this time what caused the fire. The fire is under investigation.
