Fire claims 22-month-old child

NEW ALBANY, Miss. (AP) - Authorities continue to investigate the apartment fire in New Albany that killed a 22-month-old child and injured her mother.

Assistant Chief Eddie Latham says he won't release the victims' names because the investigation continues into the fire that occurred Monday about 11:43 p.m.

He said the mother remains hospitalized.

When firefighters arrived at the apartment at Albany Acres, they found a kitchen fire that was under control and had damaged the apartment but had not spread to adjoining units.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
