A northeast Ohio prosecutor says a 10-year-old girl died in a house fire early Monday morning, hours before a man suspected of raping her was scheduled to go on trial, reports CBS Pittsburgh. A total of three people were reported dead by the Youngstown Fire Department after the fire on the city's south side. Neighbors in the 3600-block of Powers Way say they heard a loud explosion around 3:30 a.m.; moments later, they saw flames rip through the two-story home. Dozens of firefighters were needed to control the fire. When it was out, firefighters found the bodies of two adults and their 10-year-old granddaughter. The adults are identified as Billy and Judy Schmidt, both in their 60s.

I hope the firefighters or the Fire Chief would be able to check to see if there were burned smoke or strobe light alarms there. I guess they did not check them out throughout the burned house.

I wish they would provide her name so that I can say "Rest In Peace, ______". They did provide the grandparents's names but not her. :(

Rest In Peace, Mr. and Mrs. Schmidt.

I am kind of confused on what you were saying. It is the grandparents and their granddaughter who was killed in the fire at their home.

So I gathered that you were thinking of what Southpaw mentioned about a daughter of her parents and their granddaughter (niece) being killed in the fire at their home. Am I correct????
