Boy, 2, dies, bringing central Pa. fire toll to 7

LANCASTER, Pa. - Authorities say a 2-year-old central Pennsylvania boy critically injured in a July 4 fire has died, bringing the death toll from the blaze to seven, including six from one family.

Crozer-Chester Medical Center spokesman Grant Gegwich says Cordail Kuhns was pronounced dead about 4 p.m. Saturday. The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports his parents and three siblings under 10 were also killed in the fire.

Forty-one-year-old Crystal Kuhns and her 4-year-old daughter, Mickey, died earlier at the same hospital. The fire also killed 51-year-old David Kuhns, 8-year-old Skylar Kuhns, and 6-year-old Shawn Kuhns, along with 65-year-old homeowner Jimmie Moore.

Fire officials say the blaze started in the kitchen of a Lancaster duplex early Thursday. One woman reportedly gave birth to a girl hours after escaping the flames.
