Officials name victims of deadly barn fire

June 24, 2019

COSHOCTON, Ohio (AP) — Officials have identified the three youths who died in one of two Ohio fires that killed a total of six people.

The Coshocton County coroner says 15-year-old Gabriella Hunley, 12-year-old Joshua Hunley and 15-year-old Cody Smith died June 18 in a barn fire in the county.

The condition of a fourth youth injured in the fire hasn’t been released.

Capt. Dave Stone, of the Warsaw-based Walhonding Valley Fire District, said the youths had been having a sleepover in the barn when it caught fire.

Licking County authorities last week identified the three people killed in a house fire June 18 in that county as 72-year-old Dennis Erckert, 49-year-old Kelly Waters and 6-year-old Jeremiah Rutter.

Investigators are trying to determine the causes of both fires.
