Baby Dies In House Fire, Parents Injured


A fire in East Spencer has claimed the life of a 10-week-old baby. Fire investigators said the fire call came in around 5:18 a.m Friday and the home was completely engulfed when they arrived. The father, identified as, Joey Doolittle was able to grab his three-year-old son and run across the street to his brother's house for help. Doolittle and his wife were injured trying to get back into the home to save their 10-month-old infant.
Crews said the family was renting the home which was a total loss. Investigators said the family's car was also destroyed.  A pit bull reported to be in the home was not found. 
The parents were airlifted to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center's burn unit in Winston-Salem.
The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Rowan Fire Marshal's Office and the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI).
