GREENVILLE, Ohio (WKEF/WGT) - One person was killed and four others hospitalized after a fire broke out in Greenville early Saturday morning.

According to Greenville Fire Chief Russ Thompson, crews responded to the call just after 2 a.m. on Saturday.

Thompson told FOX 45 News that two adults and three children were in the home when the fire alarm went off.

Initial reports said one adult female was trapped in the mobile home where the fire broke out.

She was not able to make it out of the home.

All three kids, ages ranging from six to 14, and an adult male were able to evacuate and were transported to the hospital for various levels of carbon monoxide poisoning and burns.

Two kids, ages 12 and 14, remain at Dayton Children’s Hospital under intensive care while the adult male is being treated at Miami Valley Hospital.

The youngest has been treated and released from Wayne HealthCare Hospital.

Thompson said that Saturday morning’s high winds made it difficult to contain the fire, but they quickly brought it under control.

The fire is still under investigation; however, officials say it was accidental.

Thompson said it started in the living room, but multiple electronics, including a space heater, make it “impossible” to determine a cause at this point in time.

A GoFundMe has been set up for the victims and their family.
