Investigators still looking for cause of fire that killed a Lubbock 3 year-old

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A mobile home fire in west Lubbock took the life of a toddler.  Flames broke out around 5:45 p.m. Monday at the Town and Country Mobile Home Park.  Monday night, Garrett Nelson with the Lubbock Fire Marshal's Office told NewsChannel 11 the victim is a three-year-old boy.

Fire investigators tell us 11 people were inside when the flames broke out. Fire teams arrived on scene to find the house in flames. They were told someone was trapped inside. Crews immediately went to work. It took them 30 to 45 minutes to douse the flames, and that's when they found the victim in the northwest bedroom.

Everyone else made it out of the home, but authorities tell us the parents were injured trying to save the young boy. "The mother that lives here and the father of the children that live here, they were injured when they attempted to go back into the structure. They have refused medical treatment at this time," Lubbock Fire Department Deputy Chief Chris Angerer said.  He tells NewsChannel 11, 14-people lived in the home.  Ten of them were children.

Investigators told us Monday night they were close to determining how the fire started, but at that time they could only tell us is that it appears to have started in the south side bedroom. We'll continue to follow this story and bring you the latest as it develops.
