Seven children, including a 7-month-old girl, perished in a fast-moving fire in a home on a Pennsylvania dairy farm while their mother milked cows and their father dozed in a milk truck down the road while taking a break from work as a milk delivery truck driver.
A fire at a farmhouse in Blain, Pennsylvania killed seven children while their mother was in a barn milking cows and their father was taking a nap in a milk delivery truck about one mile from the house. Only a 3-year-old daughter, who rushed to her mom to tell her about the fire, and both parents survived.
