BRYAN (AP) - Firefighters in Ohio's northwest corner say two people were able to escape from a house fire with the 5-month-old son of a couple killed in the blaze.The Bryan Times reports that two who died were on the second floor while the three who got out were on the first floor.
Authorities say the victims are 18-year-old Ashley Jenkins and 20-year-old Sebastian McConnell. The woman's mother and stepfather were staying at the house and got out with the baby.
Bryan Fire Chief Bruce Siders says firefighters arriving at the house were told two people were trapped upstairs but the flames were too intense to reach them.
