TN baby dies, 5 kids hurt in fire while moms out clubbing


(CNN) — An eight-month-old girl was killed and five other children hurt in a Tennessee apartment fire.

Investigators in Antioch say the children were from two families but were all in one apartment.

Their mothers had reportedly been out at a nightclub early Sunday.

It’s unclear how the fire started.

A 23-month-old-boy is in critical condition, but four other children are in stable condition.

12 apartments were affected by the fire.

Several agencies are now investigating, including the Tennessee Department of Children Services.

Officers are trying to confirm if the mothers had hired a baby sitter.
