A three-year-old boy has died after a fire at a trailer home in Heath Thursday.

State Fire Marshal spokesman Shane Cartmill said  the fire started around 5 p.m. at 152 Irving Wick Drive in the Amber Mobile Home Park.

Investigators believe the fire started in a bedroom on the east side of the home.

The boy’s name will not be released until the autopsy is complete Friday. The State Fire Marshal’s Office, the Heath Police and Fire Departments are investigating.

Smoke detectors were in the home, but it’s unknown if they were activated.

Cartmill said this is the 25th fire-related fatality in Ohio in 2010, and the third in less than 36 hours.
