Investigators ID boys who died in house fire

Investigators have identified the two young boys who died in a house fire Monday morning.

 

Firefighters were called to the house in the 8200 block of Airport Road before 6 AM Monday. Stephen and Cheronna Towns, as well as their 4-month-old daughter Deja, managed to escape the blaze through a bedroom window. Firefighters extinguished the fire and found the bodies of 3-year-old Isaiah Towns and 4-year-old Stephen Towns Jr. in the house.

 

Stephen Towns received critical burns from the fire when he tried to save the young boys. Several space heaters were found inside the home, and officials say they may have contributed to the fire. The investigation is ongoing.

CHAFFEE, Mo. (AP) - Federal investigators say a Union Pacific freight train involved in a collision with another freight train had a signal to stop at the rail intersection where the crash occurred in southeast Missouri.

The May 25 accident occurred when the UP train hit the side of a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train at the rail intersection near Chaffee. The accident derailed about two dozen rail cars, destroyed columns supporting a highway overpass and injured seven people, though none seriously.

The National Transportation Safety Board says in its preliminary report released Friday that signal data show the UP train had a signal indication to stop at the intersection, and the BNSF train had a signal to proceed through the intersection.

The report also says the damage is estimated at $11 million.
