FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Fort Smith authorities say a 4-year-old girl has died in an apartment fire.

Firefighters responded to the six-unit apartment building on Tuesday. They say 28-year-old Aaron Tash was able to get his 3-year-old son out of the apartment but couldn’t get back inside to save his daughter, Erin Tash.

Division Chief Phil Christensen tells the Southwest Times Record that Aaron Tash suffered minor injuries but wasn’t hospitalized. He says an electrical short likely caused the fire.

The apartment didn’t have a smoke detector.
