Authorities have identified the name of the child who died in Saturday’s house fire in Greeley.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office says the victim is 9-year old Brooklyn Lendt, the daughter of Kyle Lendt and Crystal Oberbreckling. 

The 911 call came in Saturday around 3:30 am, reporting a house fire at 105 Beckner Street. The caller said a child was still inside the home. Fire departments from Greeley, Edgewood, Delaware and Manchester responded, with fire crews finding Brooklyn’s body inside the house. 

The home was a total loss. 

The Sheriff’s Office on Monday said the possible cause of the fire was an electrical issue – though it still remains under investigation by the State Fire Marshall’s Office. 

Brooklyn was a fourth grader at Lambert Elementary in Manchester.
