When Oskaloosa firefighters arrived at the home on Friday night, they were told seven-year-old David Fogle was trapped in the basement. The boy’s mother, Angelia Wells, had tried to get to him, unsuccessfully, and was badly burned. Firefighters did eventually rescue the child but he died later at the hospital. Two other children made it out safely.
The Mahaska County Community Emergency Response Team is collecting donations for the family.
