2 children, 1 adult die in mobile home fire

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP — Three people, including two children, were killed early Thursday when flames engulfed their mobile home on Ohio 128 in this Highland County township, near the village of Highland.

        Responding to several 911 calls reporting a fire at 3:38 a.m., a Highland County sheriff's deputy found flames shooting from the mobile home in the 7500 block of Ohio 128, the sheriff's office said. Firefighters from the Highland County Joint North Fire Department arrived shortly afterward and begin battling the blaze.

        When the fire was extinguished, three victims were found inside the mobile home, the sheriff's office said.

        They were identified as Deborah L. Reeder, 49, Brionna M. Peacock, 4, and Johnna M. Peacock, 2, all of whom resided in the mobile home. The bodies were transported to the Montgomery County coroner's office, where autopsies will be performed.

        Two people who escaped the blaze — Rebecca E. Turner, 22, and John Peacock Jr., 10 months, were transported to Highland District Hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation. Deputies were not sure of the relationships of those in the mobile home.

        The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
