Royal City investigators are looking into the cause of a fire that claimed the life of a young girl.
Around 3 a.m. Sunday, firefighters arrived to the Coachman Mobile Home Park in Royal City. The home, near Catalpa Avenue and Acacia Street, was close to other trailers on fire.
According to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, a 5-year-old girl was "trapped or otherwise unable to escape," they said in a Facebook post. Sadly, she did not survive. The other residents made it out.
Two other trailers burned and another was damaged.
The coroner will determine the child’s cause of death. Royal City Police are investigating the cause of the fire.
