A young southern Indiana girl who survived a fire that killed three siblings has been welcomed home from the hospital with a ride in a fire truck and a reception.
The News and Tribune and WLKY-TV report police cars, other fire trucks and dozens of other vehicles participated in a short parade Saturday to celebrate the homecoming of 5-year-old Tat'yana Hughes.
Tat'yana was released from an Indianapolis hospital Friday after sustaining severe injuries in the Jan. 4 house fire that authorities say began when a man fired a flare into the home where the family was spending the night.
Among the more than 100 people who gathered at New Albany's Griffin Recreation Center to greet Tat'yana was Fire Department Sgt. Bob Hannon, who pulled the girl from the burning home.
