Kenosha Fire Claims 4th Victim

A fire in Kenosha has claimed a fourth life. A 19–month-old has died at children's hospital of Wisconsin.

That fire also claimed the lives of 11 and nine-year-old sisters, and their 21-year-old step–aunt.

Investigators say the fire started in an overloaded electrical outlet. Police Lieutenant John Morrissey says an outlet in the home's living room had a three–prong extender in it that connected to an air conditioner, television, cable box and a VCR.

He says several circuit breakers tripped, and there were no smoke detectors in the house.
