Fire Claims Lives Of Indiana Man, Toddler In Sevierville

CREATED Apr 13, 2014

SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities said a cabin fire in Sevierville has claimed the lives of an Indiana man and a toddler.

Ricky Hudson, 56, of Indianapolis, Indiana, and 5-year-old Tayveon Temple were part of a group of more than 20 people who were in the three-story cabin when the fire broke out around 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

Officials said Hudson, the toddler's step grandfather, made it out of the cabin but suffered major lacerations due to breaking out glass. He later died at an area hospital.

Authorities said they haven't found the toddler's remains, but don't believe he made it out of the cabin.

Officials said the group of family and friends were visiting from Indianapolis and Louisville, Ky. Many of them were treated for minor abrasions.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
