(CBS/STMW) – A 3-year-old child was killed and three other people were injured after an extra-alarm fire on Friday night in Austin on the West Side.
The 2-alarm blaze broke out on a rear porch at a building in the 100 block of North Laramie Avenue about 8 p.m., Fire Media Affairs Chief Larry Langford said. The fire eventually spread to a neighboring home, he added.
Three people were inside one of the homes, and two of them were trapped, Langford said. All three were removed, including a 56-year-old woman and a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old.
