A mobile home fire in a rural area near the Ohio River has claimed the life of a mother, who initially escaped the blaze but went back in to retrieve bottles and clothing for her 4-month-old baby.
Kinman said the fire appears to have been started by a small space heater in a bedroom shared by Mercer and her fiance.
He said the couple and the baby lived in an addition that had been built onto a single-wide mobile home, where three other people lived. All six people got out, but Kinman said Mercer's fiance reported she went back to get things for the baby.
