SULPHUR, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana sheriff says an overnight mobile home fire believed started by a wood stove has killed five people in a small Ohio River town.
Crawford County Sheriff Tim Wilkerson tells WDRB-TV three adults and two children died in early Thursday's fire near the town of Sulphur about 30 miles west of Louisville, Ky.
Wilkerson says two half-brothers and a girlfriend of one of the men died along with the 8-year-old daughter of one of the brothers and the woman's 3-year-old son. He broke the tragic news to about 10 of the victims' relatives by gathering them in a circle with a chaplain.
County Emergency Management Director Larry Allen says everyone in the home died in the fire.
Fire officials believe a wood stove started the fire.
