Three DeKalb Children Killed in Louisiana Fire
Three kids from DeKalb County were killed when fire swept through a mobile home they were staying in for Christmas in Houma Louisiana. The children’s parents and five other children were taken to a burn unit in Baton Rouge. The children’s father was burned trying to rescue one child after being awakened by smoke coming under his door. The mobile home was totally destroyed. The shocking news quickly spread to Valley Head School where the children attended classes and will have counselors speaking with kids when classes resume after Christmas break.
