Milwaukee officials identify boy killed in house fire

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A seven-year-old boy killed in a house fire in Milwaukee was identified Monday as Miguel Quintanilla.

Authorities said he suffered smoke inhalation in a blaze on Saturday morning. He died Sunday at Milwaukee Children’s Hospital.

Firefighters said they revived Miguel twice just outside the burning house, before he was taken to the hospital. A preliminary investigation shows that an electrical problem caused the fire.

Monday afternoon, Milwaukee firefighters will check the neighborhood where the fire broke out – and they’ll see whether those homes have working smoke detectors.

Milwaukee officials give away smoke detectors to residents, as a way to discourage house fires.
