Toddler dies in fire at SW Ind. day care center

Sullivan — Authorities say a predawn fire at a southwestern Indiana day care center has killed a toddler.

Sullivan Police Officer Mike Gorgas tells the Sullivan Daily Times that a 1½-year-old girl died in the fire Tuesday at Waterman's Wonderland Daycare in the city about 80 miles southwest of Indianapolis. The child's name was not immediately released.

Sullivan Fire Chief Rob Robertson tells the Terre Haute Tribune-Star the body was recovered in a playpen.

Authorities say several other children ranging in age from 1 to 10 and an adult were able to escape.

The survivors told Gorgas they smelled smoke about 5:45 a.m. "and the next thing they knew there were flames."

It's the second fatal fire in Sullivan in five days: A 72-year-old man died in an apartment tower blaze Thursday.
