ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A 9-year-old girl died and her grandmother was severely injured in a Florida house fire.

Orlando Fire Department spokeswoman Ashley Papagni says the fire broke out Sunday morning, trapping the girl inside. The girl’s grandmother was taken to a hospital with severe burns.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the girl’s brother was home at the time, but unharmed in the fire.

Papagni says the home didn’t have a working smoke detector. She says fire fighters will be going door-to-door in the neighborhood to install free smoke detectors on Monday.
