HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Family members say a 4-year-old girl has died in a fire at a multifamily home in Hartford.

The girl’s identity was not released immediately but Lashawn Times says the victim was her cousin.

Hartford police say one person was killed in the fire on Bedford Street on Tuesday morning. Authorities say a woman also suffered severe burns.

Firefighters responded to the three-story home at about 5:30 a.m. Emergency responders rescued two adults and a child from the building, but say another child was believed to be trapped inside.

Officials say about 10 people lived in apartments in the building, including four children.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
