WINSTON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

A three-year-old girl died in a fire at a home in Addison, fire officials confirmed Friday morning. The fire happened Thursday evening between 8:30 p.m. and 8:50 p.m. at a mobile home on Rock Creek Circle.

State fire marshal Ed Paulk said Anna Arlene Hocutt died at the scene. He said she lived in the mobile home with her parents, but it's unclear how many people were inside the home when the fire started. No one else was hurt in the fire.

Neighbors identified the child's parents as John and Vern Hocutt, and said the family had lived in the home for about three or four years.

Paulk says the cause of the fire is under investigation, but he doesn't suspect anything criminal at this time.

Paul says investigators will be at the scene Friday. He said anytime you see a child die in a fire it takes a toll on the entire community, including investigators.

"I see a three-year-old child who has just started life, does not have a chance to grow up and experience the things all children should," said Paulk. "It's a tragedy."

Crime tape surrounds the burned mobile home. A pink stroller and a child's plastic pool could still be seen among the debris.

Rodney Seal, a neighbor who also identified himself as a family friend, said Anna's parents tried to rescue her but could not.

Seal said last night the Hocutt family had problems with their heating unit, so he and John Hocutt hooked up a natural gas tank to a heater. Seals said he thought they had cleaned out the tubes properly and isn't sure what happened. He said the house went up in flames and the fire spread quickly.

Both local and state investigators are looking into the cause of the fire. Addison's police chief has not yet commented on the fire investigation.
