2nd child dies after Baltimore row house fire; cause of blaze still under investigation


BALTIMORE — Fire officials say a second child has died after a blaze in a west Baltimore row house earlier this week.

Fire department spokesman Ian Brennan says 8-year-old Decerio Coley died Tuesday at Johns Hopkins Children's Center. He had been taken there after Monday's fire, which killed his 7-year old brother, Sean McCullough.

Three adults who were in the house escaped unharmed.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
