A six-year-old boy in Louisiana was killed while playing in a “fort,” authorities said.
According to the Louisiana fire marshals, the six year old and her two siblings were using a concrete prefabricated concrete staircase, which was covered, hollowed out, and located near their home.
Witnesses said the children decided to build a “campfire,” which trapped the six-year-old.
“There is no other way to describe this other than purely tragic,” said State Fire Marshal H. “Butch” Browning.
Two other children were uninjured.
The Fire Marshal’s Office said the children’s parents were at their homes at the time of the fire.
