Three Remain In Critical Condition

A Lynchburg, Tennessee home serving as a 24/7 unlicensed child care facility was destroyed by Fire on September 19th, 2014 sending six children to the hospital.

Three of the children remained in critical condition according to Lynchburg Fire Department Battalion Chief Jason Campbell. The three children are ages 9 months, 1 year, and 21 months.

Three other children were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries and one was picked up after the fire by a relative. Those four are estimated to be ages two to four.

Doris Lee,  who operated the facility in her rented home, was treated and released from Lynchburg general Hospital following the fire, according to Campbell.
 
Seven children were in the home when the fire broke out about 10:00a.m. Friday.
 
City officials said the 24/7 child care facility was operating without a license.
 
Campbell said he didn't know the prognosis or outlook for the two toddlers and infant who remained hospitalized for treatment of heat injuries and smoke inhalation.
 
He said the fire marshall's office and the Lynchburg Police Department continue an investigation into the blaze, which destroyed the home.
 
This is why every child care facility, whether in-home or center-based needs to not only practice proper fire safety, but have a plan in place in the event a fire breaks out.
