UPDATE: Daycare fire claims life of one child; other children escape unharmed

SULLIVAN — An early morning fire at Waterman’s Wonderland Daycare in Sullivan resulted in the death of a child believed to be about 1 year old. The child’s body was recovered in a playpen, according to Sullivan Fire Chief Rob Robertson.

Robertson told the Tribune-Star that about a half-dozen children, ranging in age from 1-10 years old, were in the daycare under adult supervision at the time of the fire. The other children were not injured.

The fire chief said counseling would be provided for firefighters, who were shaken by the death of a child.

“We’re trying to get through it the best we can,” he said.

The daycare building, a structure Robertson described as a modular, is a separate building near the owner’s residence in the 500 block of East Silver Street in Sullivan.

Three fire stations were dispatched to the daycare at 5:38 this morning. The Sullivan Fire Department, Thunderbird Fire Protection District in Farmersburg and the Carlisle-Haddon Fire Department all responded to the fire.

The cause of the fire is not yet known; however, the State Fire Marshal’s office is investigating.
