Two-Year-Old Dies in House Fire

A two-year-old Amish boy is dead following a house fire Thursday afternoon in Busti.

The Chautauqua County Fire Investigation Team says firefighters knew Eli Shetler was missing when they arrived on the scene, and knew he was probably on the third floor. But, because of the intensity of the blaze, they couldn’t get to him until it was too late.

The fire was started by children playing with matches.

13 fire departments and the Chautauqua County Tech Rescue Team were on the scene.
