Apartment Fire in Yankton Claims 2-Yr Old
Late last week a fire broke out at a Yankton apartment and a 2-yr old girl has died.
Yankton Fire Chief Tom Kurtenbach says investigators are still trying to determine the cause of Friday’s fatal apartment fire. The victim of the fire has been identified as 2-year-old Kylee Colleen Saul, a resident of the apartment.
The South Dakota Fire Marshal’s Office and the Yankton Police Department are assisting the Yankton Fire Department in the investigation.
