LORA, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say four children are dead and their mother and two law enforcement officers are injured following an early-morning house fire in Indiana.
The Department of Homeland Security and the Indiana fire marshal are investigating.
Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby tells WLFI-TV (http://(link tracking not allowed)/2gaAKaj ) that Deputy Drew Yoder was flown by helicopter to a hospital burn unit in Fort Wayne, about 80 miles away. The sheriff says the next 48 to 72 hours will be crucial for Yoder's recovery.
A northern Indiana sheriff says a deputy who responded to a house fire that killed four children was airlifted to a hospital after suffering severe smoke inhalation and burns to his hands and forehead.
The station reports that Flora police officer Josh Disinger was also injured while responding to the fire in the town about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis. He's in stable condition at a Lafayette hospital.
