5th victim dies following Louisville fire

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Jefferson County's coroner's office
says a 10-month-old boy is the fifth victim of a weekend house fire
in Louisville that killed two other children and two adults.

Jack Arnold, a deputy coroner, told the Courier-Journal that
Ashton Seargeant was pronounced dead Sunday evening at Kosair
Children's Hospital.

Arnold said the boy died from complications from smoke
inhalation.

The newspaper reported that two other children who were in the
house when it caught fire Saturday morning remain hospitalized. One
is in critical condition, the other child's condition has been
upgraded to fair.

Those killed were two cousins, 5-year-old Amarion Seargent and 3-year-old Anton Seargent, and Gabrial Johnson, 21, of Louisville, said Jim Wesley, a Jefferson County deputy coroner. The fourth victim, a male, has not yet been positively identified.
