Three Children Killed in Fire Were Siblings

Cheyenne, Wyo. – Fremont County authorities say the three
small children who died in a central Wyoming trailer fire last week were siblings.

Coroner Ed McAuslan on Monday identified the three children as 1-year-old Ezra Black, 2-year-old Kathryn Mullins and a 3-year-old boy, Jesse Black.

He says the preliminary finding is that the three died of smoke inhalation in the Thursday fire that destroyed a mobile home just outside of Riverton.

Sgt. Jerry Evagelatos of the Fremont County Sheriff's Office says the three children were siblings.

A 29-year-old woman who was injured in the fire, known as Bridget Brown or Bridget Mullins, remains in critical condition at
a Denver hospital.

Evagelatos says the critically injured woman is not the mother of the three dead children.
