BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – A 2-year-old boy died early Sunday in a Bloomington house fire.

Fire crews were called to the home in the 3800 block of South Tyler Lane just before 8 a.m. One of the front rooms was completely burnt out, and you can see the charred insides.

The Indiana State Fire Marshall’s office is investigating the fire.

An autopsy is set to be performed in Terre Haute today, and it will determine the cause and manner of death as well as the child’s identity.

No other information is being released by officials at this time.
