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.
Funeral services are set for 10:30 Friday morning, April 29th Muller Funeral Home in Manchester.
Visitation will be from 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm Thursday, April 28th at the funeral home.
