1 dead, 3 injured in Arizona mobile home fire A 2-year-old boy dragged a 1-year-old Arizona girl Friday from a house fire that killed her mother and injured two other adults, authorities said.
Fire crews responding to the fire in the Pinal County community of Maricopa south of Phoenix found the girl's mother, 22-year-old Michelle Mariano, lying near a doorway of the mobile home, Maricopa Fire Department spokesman Brad Pitassi said. She was identified by Sheriff's spokeswoman Lt. Tamatha Villar.
Villar said officials believe the boy is the girl's brother but haven't confirmed that.
Michelle Mariano's 28-year-old sister, Marion Mariano, was also severely burned, authorities said, and she and the little girl were airlifted to Maricopa Medical Center's burn unit in Phoenix.
The little girl had facial and torso burns covering nearly 40 percent of her body and Marion Mariano had burns over 70 percent of her body and was in extremely critical condition, Villar said.
