MULBERRY – Authorities in north-central Indiana say a 7-year-old boy died in a house fire after firefighters were unable to reach him in an upstairs bedroom.
Madison Township firefighters were told when they arrived about 2 a.m. Saturday at the home in the Clinton County town of Mulberry that Noaha Vaughn-Linderer was still inside the burning structure.
Two adults and a teenager who escaped from the home were taken to IU Hospital in Lafayette where they were admitted for smoke inhalation. The house was gutted. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
