5-year-old girl dies in Toledo fire


TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in Toledo say a 5-year-old girl died in an overnight apartment fire.

The fire broke out in the second-floor apartment in west Toledo at about 1 a.m. Friday. Fire officials say alarms sounded, but Olivia Cline was somehow separated from the rest of her family and they couldn’t get back to her.

Firefighters eventually found her in a bedroom. She was rushed to a hospital, where she died.

Neighbors say a family of five lived in the apartment. The Red Cross is assisting them.
Firefighters don’t know yet what caused the blaze, which was confined to the one apartment.
