Kaiden Strubberg Death — An early this week house fire, according to local authorities in St. Louis, claimed the life of a 3-year-old child. According to KMOV, a suburb about 20 minutes outside of downtown St. Louis is where the fire started on Tuesday morning. When firefighters came to assist neighbors in putting out the fire, they reported that flames were coming from the mobile home’s front windows.
The fires were eventually put out, according to the fire department. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office expressed gratitude to people who heroically made an effort to put out the fire before emergency personnel arrived. According to the High Ridge Fire Department, the fire also sent the child’s mother and older sibling to the hospital.
Officials identified the 3-year-old child who died as Kaiden Strubberg. “Our condolences are with the victim’s family as they cope with this tragedy. Our hearts also go out to the first responders and dispatchers involved,” the sheriff’s office said. “This was a tough day for everyone.”
Authorities said their investigation into the cause of the fire continues.
