Three young children dead in Kokomo area house fire

Three young siblings died from injuries suffered in an early Saturday morning house fire in Miami County.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum said 6-year-old Miracle Gingerich, 5-year-old Steven Gingerich and 1-year-old Wilma Gingerich were trapped inside their home in the 13000 block of South County Road 300 East.

Slocum said their mother, Laura Gingerich, called 911 around 10:50 a.m. Saturday to report that her children were in the burning residence. Firefighters that arrived shortly after 11 a.m. found the children in a second-floor room that contained heavy smoke.

The children were all found unconscious and not breathing, Slocum said. Miracle was taken to a Kokomo hospital, while Steven and Wilma were taken to a Peru hospital.

“Unfortunately, all three children died at the hospital,” Slocum said in a statement. “Early evidence indicates that Laura Gingerich was in a downstairs bathroom while the children were in a second-floor room. Laura Gingerich smelled smoke and tried to get to her children.”
