A 7-year-old girl died Wednesday night in Corralillo, Cartago, when the family’s small home caught fire and burned to the ground. The child’s body was in a bedroom.
A 4 year old suffered burns to the face, and an 8 year old suffered breathing problems, said the Cuerpo de Bomberos. An adult, 30, also suffered burns.
Firefighters said that the cause was electrical involving a refrigerator that was adjacent to the room in which the dead girl slept.
