MARION, Ohio — A 3-year-old boy has died in a fire in a trailer home in north-central Ohio.

Pleasant Township Fire Chief Clint Canterbury says an adult and another child were injured but survived the Tuesday morning blaze that heavily damaged the rural home near Marion, about 45 miles north of Columbus.

Canterbury says the two survivors — the mother and the 1-year-old brother of the child who died — were suffering from smoke inhalation and frostbite. They were hospitalized in Columbus. Another adult also got out.

The call came in at 6:44 a.m., and flames were visible in the front windows and door by the time fire crews arrived. Brayden Blevins' body was found in a bedroom.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
