• 3-year-old killed in Lowell house fire


    LOWELL, Mass. - A three-year-old boy was killed Friday morning after being pulled from a house fire in Lowell. Three others were hospitalized.

    The 2-alarm fire broke out at the intersection of Parker Street and Bradstreet Avenue around 6:30 a.m.

    The three-year-old victim was found in a back bedroom. Crews were unable to get to him due to heavy flames.

    "It's a very difficult day for our firefighters," the Lowell fire chief said in a news conference Friday afternoon. "Despite their heroic efforts, the child did not survive."
    Three others were taken to the hospital. One person was released; one adult and an eight-year-old child remain hospitalized.

    FOX25 spoke with a neighbor, who saw the flames and called 911. 

    "There were flames coming from the bottom floor and out the windows," the neighbor said.

    Two firefighters suffered minor injuries. One was treated for twisting a knee, the other was treated for smoke inhalation. 

    The fire chief said it was unclear if the home had working fire detectors.
