A woman and two children were killed when their Mount Vernon home caught fire early Thursday morning.


A utility worker surveys the house located at 1129 Mulberry Street Friday morning, hours after a house fire claimed the life of three people.

Firefighters were dispatch to the house, located at 1129 Mulberry Street, at 12:24 a.m.

Mount Vernon Fire Chief Wes Dixon said when firefighters arrived, the first floor of the home was heavy with fire and was extending up the stairwell.

Dixon said Black Township Fire was called in to help gain entry into the home.

According to Dixon, eight people were in the house at the time of the fire.

Three people, Amanda Robb, 28, her daughter, Aubrey Robb, 5, and Bailey Robb, 15, never made it out of the house.

Dixon said the three victims were trapped in an upstairs bedroom.

One man escaped from the blaze from a second floor window and jumped onto a porch roof, then to the ground, said Dixon. Another man in a bedroom on the first floor was rescued by firefighters. Both men were taken to the hospital. The other three people in the house made it out without injuries either through windows or doors, Dixon said.

Dixon said the fire is still being investigated, however, he said the state fire marshal believes the fire was accidental,
