MAGNOLIA, Del.- A Magnolia house trailer fire that killed a young girl last week has claimed the life of the child's grandmother.

Fifty-six-year-old Peggy L. Klinger was able to escape last Wednesday night's fire on Juanita Drive, but suffered severe burns in the process. She was taken to Crozer-Chester Burn Center in Pennsylvania where was hospitalized until early Monday morning when she succumbed to her injuries.

The body of Clinger's 11-year-old granddaughter Andromeda Brown was found inside the house trailer after the fire. Clinger's 14-year-old grandson, along with a 2-year-old girl under Clinger's care, were injured in the blaze. 

The fire caused an estimated $35,000 in damage to the home. The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office is still investigating the cause.
