Grace Miller, 13, died 4:29 p.m. Sunday, according to the Citizen’s Voice.

She had been rescued from a fire last Thursday in the Glen Lyon section of Newport Township.

According to the Citizen’s Voice, crews were called to the March 18 fire at 58-60 N. Market St. around 6:35 a.m. and learned she was trapped on the second floor.

According to a report from the department’s social media account, members made access via ground ladders to the occupant’s bedroom, rescuing the occupant. An adult and two children managed to escape the fire on their own.
