Does anyone know anything about a fire in a neighborhood on 113 where a child died? I heard this morning that it was a possible meth lab that exploded. Adult and a few other kids got out but the toddler died.

There shouldn't be any place for gossip when a child dies tragically. Saying "I heard" and making such horrible insinuations is irresponsible. There is no news story about a possible meth lab explosion. And this tragedy endured by this family is bad enough without having to read about stupid, insensitive comments by folks in our community. Before you blog, post or whatever, think about what impact your statement has on a family. Once posted on the internet, it cannot be deleted. This family needs our prayers and support from our community. Not senseless gossip. Be careful. They lost a 3 year old child. God bless this family.

They were just asking a question about a house fire- not gossipping about it! everyone is concerned when a young child dies so if it is true lets everyone pray for the family instead of bickering on here!

I know the family and the fire is still under investigation..All we know is the fire started in the living room..Not sure really what caused it..The Mom and 5 yr old was in bed sleeping and the 3 yr old was sleeping on the top bunk in the boys bedroom and the 9 and 10 yr old boys were a couple houses down at a friend's house playing..The 5 yr old woke up smelling smoke woke up his Mom and they jumped out the window cause they couldn't get out the bedroom door..Then the Mom ran around to try and go back inside to get the 3 yr old boy and couldn't get back inside..She tried and she got a 3rd degree burns on her legs, hands, and her nose I believe..The little boys funeral is tomorrow in Carrollton..The 3 yr old that died died within 10 mins from smoke inhulation..The fire chief said the spot where the boy was there was no black smoke at all but the entire room was black just not where the boy was..The boy didn't have any burns on him and was completely clean..He had a smile on his face to..So I believe an Angel was there protecting him and was covering him..If the bedroom door had of been opened then he probaly would have been burned.

I just checked with the coroner. He said no child has died in Polk county. He also confirmed that, under state law, the coroner is always notified of a child death because all of them must have an autopsy and be investigated. So now I am wondering about this post...what started this rumor? There appears to be something going on because some appear to know some details. Did this happen in this county? Or what it in Bartow? Just asking because I need to know where to look if there was a fire and a death. That would be news. BTW, I hate it when anything like this happens to a family...it's the worst stories to do..

I know the family..A Church has helped them out A LOT..They have donated so much and few other people has donated things as well..I went to the Funeral yesterday and it was so sad seeing the brothers of the little boy cry and the parents..It hurt my heart it made me cry seeing them cry..I never had the chance to meet the little boy but I know he was a great and loving kid.

You fool, this forum is based on Carrollton so obviously it is news in Carrollton. Noone said anything about Polk County.
