The Portage Fire Department reports the death of a young child in a Sunday morning apartment fire. The victim’s name and age haven’t been released. Emergency responders were called to the Ram Hotel apartments just before 10:00 A-M. While Portage police officers were helping residents evacuate the structure, they were told a young child might be trapped on the fifth floor. Fire and smoke initially stopped the would-be rescuers, but firefighters were eventually able to find the child — which later died at Divine Savior Healthcare in Portage. People who were displaced from their apartments have been offered temporary shelter at the Portage Presbyterian Church.
