MUNCIE, Ind. - A toddler was killed and three other people were injured Thursday morning after a fire sparked at a home in Muncie.
Firefighters said the fire was reported about 9 a.m. in the 1700 block of South Daly on the city's southwest side.
Muncie Fire Chief Eddie Ball confirmed that four people were inside the home at the time of the fire: a man, a woman, a 14-month-old baby and a toddler.
