Fire Kills Young Oklahoma Boy

Alex Haskins, 3, died in a house fire in northeast Oklahoma, reports The Oklahoman.

Firefighters found his body and several of his pets after a raging fire trapped him inside his home, officials said Thursday.

Jessica Haskins woke up about midnight Tuesday after smelling smoke and saw flames at her bedroom door, he said. Haskins grabbed her 4-year-old son, who was standing at the foot of her bed, threw him out a window and then climbed out, Kauffman said.

The mother ran around the house to the front door, but was met with flames and smoke that prevented her from entering the house to rescue her younger son, he said.

The wooden structure was engulfed in flames by the time several Grand Lake fire departments arrived at the scene, Kauffman said.
