BATTLE CREEK, Mich. – A young girl is in very critical condition after fire fighters rescued her from a house fire, Thursday morning. Battle Creek Police believe that the fire is suspicious.

The home is located on Young Street within the Battle Creek city limits.

Officers say two older children were able to jump out of a window to escape the flames, but the young girl could not get out by herself. Fire fighters found the girl once they went inside. She was taken to Kalamazoo for treatment, but the extent of her injuries is not yet known.

Police say it is a single-family home. The little girl’s mother was coming home when she discovered the fire.

It’s being called suspicious due to the rate at which the fire spread. Police also say there has been a history of domestic violence at the home.
