Tragedy Strikes Raytown Sunday morning

An early-morning fire in an apartment building on 60th Street west of Raytown Road took the life of 5-year-old Jeremiah Roberts and left his grandmother Sharon Roberts and his 18-month-old brother Jabin in critical condition. It was reported by his Uncle Grady Lauderdale that Sharon Roberts has suffered burns over 70% of her body.  Jamie’s six-year-old brother Jacob escaped serious injury by crawling out a back door to safety after trying to help his little brothers. His uncle credits Jacob’s fire safety lessons in school with giving him the knowledge needed to survive.

Jeremiah was the son of Jacob and Kindra Roberts. A GoFundMe account has been set up to assist the family with expenses. The FBI is sending a fire investigator to help determine the cause of the fire. The Red Cross is providing assistance for the families displaced by the blaze.
