A 7-year-old Lincoln girl died Monday night in a house fire.
The fire in the Taylor Street home started shortly before 10 p.m., according to the Maine fire marshal’s office.
Authorities said that by the time firefighters located Adele Parent and removed her from the home, she was already dead.
“Because of the time it took us to make that rescue, the fire advanced further and by the time they got her out, it was fully involved. There were flames about 30 feet high,” Lincoln Fire Capt. Kenneth Goslin told ABC affiliate WVII.
Five other family members — three adults and two children — were taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, according to the fire marshal’s office.
The fire remains under investigation.
