      TOLEDO -- Toledo firefighters have confirmed that a young girl pulled from a burning home early Friday morning has died.

      Fire crews responded to a house fire just after 1:00 a.m. Friday in the 6000-block of Van Wormer Drive.

      Officials say there were five people occupying the home, but when crews arrived on the scene four of the members were standing outside the home.

      A Toledo battalion chief said the 5 or 6-year-old girl was asleep in her bed on the second floor of the home when flames broke out.

      An investigation continues.
