5-year-old girl found dead in bunk bed in Englewood house fire: 'She was the sweetest child you ever wanted to see'

Firefighters arrived just after 7 a.m. to the girl’s home in the 5800 block of South May Street and were told someone was trapped inside a burning brick two-flat, according to Deputy District Fire Chief Thomas Carbonneau. The girl’s grandfather, Kevin Nowell, said he was trying to kick in a door to rescue the girl, but he was stopped by a police officer who had arrived at the scene.
