The 2-year-old passed away from her injuries after she was taken to a local hospital and both of the older girls were in fair condition on Sunday.

“It was heart-wrenching for the dispatchers and EMTs and firemen and everyone who responded. Our prayers are with the kids and their families,” the sheriff said.
