Authorities are continuing their investigation into the cause of a fire that killed a pregnant White Pigeon woman and a 7-year-old boy early Tuesday.
Fire officials said the residence, located in the 100 block of West Chicago Road, was fully engulfed in flames by the time crews arrived shortly after 3 a.m. Both victims were on the second floor of the multi-family residence.
In all, 13 people live inside the home but 11 were present at the time of the blaze. Seven of the nine survivors were taken to Three Rivers Health for various forms of treatment.
One dog was rescued from the home but another was found perished in the basement of the two-story residence.
