Teen dies in fire in West Memphis

A West Memphis teenager has died after failing to escape a fire in his townhouse. A fire official says firefighters were called to a townhouse complex across the Mississippi River from Memphis early yesterday. The boy's mother jumped from a second-story window and was rescued, though she suffered injuries including a broken leg and was taken to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis. The cause of the fire wasn't immediately known. The boy's name wasn't released because all of his relatives had not been reached and told of his death.
