Fire in Ohio mobile home leaves 3 people dead

WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) – Three people died early Tuesday when the fire spread from an RV fire in Ohio.

A police officer on patrol saw smoke and flames emanating from the unit, said West Chester Fire and EMS chief Rick Prinz.

Three people were dragged out of the house and had CPR performed on them before being taken to hospitals where they died, Prinz said. Their names were not published.

The preliminary investigations revealed that the fire broke out in a back room and, according to Prinz, spread over the mobile home.

A firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion.

The authorities asked the state fire brigade to investigate the cause.
