Authorities on Monday were investigating the cause of a fire that swept through a home daycare in Erie, Pennsylvania, killing five children trapped inside.
Hong Kong protests in 300 words Some Hong Kong legal experts say the official description of terrorism could lead to the use of anti-terror laws. Protests have escalated over the past two months to the point of taking over the semi-autonomous Chinese city.
"So we are all at a loss, trying to figure out how this happened", Ms Lockett-Slupski told the newspaper.
"The lady that lived there ran through the fire to get outside", Santone told the Times-News.
Go Erie reported that Pennsylvania Department of Human Services records list the daycare as being compliant following a December 2018 inspection, with a certificate of compliance covering March 21, 2019 to March 2020.
The day-care center's response to the note reads, "I will make sure it will be cleaned up and remain that way", and the department listed the issue as corrected.
The same inspection noted that there needed to be "protective receptacle covers" placed in electrical outlets that children five or under had access to, which the provider planned to turn "the outlets so they were closed" when not in use.
That issue was also listed as being corrected.
Erie police detectives told the newspaper that the owner was listed in stable condition after being flown to UPMC Mercy.
