PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Fire officials say a 7-year-old girl has died a day after being trapped in a house fire in Southwest Philadelphia.
Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers tells The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/11pMvMR ) the department was informed Sunday morning that Raquibah Jeffries had been taken off life support.
Jeffries was found in a second-floor bathroom of the home on Saturday morning. Two other children were treated at a hospital and released.
Ayers says Jeffries was injured by heat and smoke after seeking shelter in the bathroom.
A total of six people were inside the home at the time of the blaze. Ayers says it had working smoke alarms.
