I have known Bobby Dailey since were kids, growing up in Easton, and my heart is aching for him and his family. I cried when I read this....God Bless you Bobby, and may your son Rest in Peace. What a life....

I remember the sports articles about this boy, and he seemed to have been a great role model for others, not just as an athlete, but as a person. My heart breaks for his family, as it is such a trajedy to lose young people like this.

As a former emergency services worker, I've seen these things all too often; what a tragedy, for people to die in such a manner!
If the fire was in fact started by a quilt cover being ingited by a heater; this time of year is very busy for fire departments, as more people use their space heaters, fireplaces, etc. Please, everyone; to prevent more tragedies like this, be extra careful with heaters, fireplaces, stoves, etc. And be sure that your home has working smoke detectors, too.
My prayers are with the victims.

Please read the article again. It is very likely started the way they stated - a quilt left on a heater. That would smolder long enough to cause a serious fire.

Tragedy beyond words!

Did I miss something in this article? A multi family dwelling with no heat or smoke detectors? What is with that?

My prayers go to theses families that have lost their loved ones. It's such a tragedy to lose someone so important in your life. One thing i've learned through experience (since my mother was killed 12 yrs ago) those that you love always give them a hug and always remind them that they're very much loved, because you never know when you'll never see them again. Sorry for the loss. I know how it feels.

What a shame. The reality is, though, that these fast-moving fires can happen in many old homes. This is because the old houses were built with "balloon" framing. Basically, the vertical studs are actually just single studs that run from the bottom to the top of each home. Couple this with the lack of any proper fire stops (wood placed at the bottom or top of each floor, between studs), and you have a perfect situation for fire to spread quickly.

I thought two people died in this fire? Any news on the other person such as their name and their accomplishments?

Quote from the article:
"boy told Howell that a quilt cover from a bed was ignited by an electrical baseboard heater, starting the fire." The boy is lying, he was playing with matches
