STURGIS, Mich. — An 11-month-old child died and the parents treated at a hospital after a fire at Gateway Village Apartments early Sunday.

Fire units were called to an apartment around 5:37 a.m. where the parents woke up to flames in their bed. All three were taken to the hospital, where the child was pronounced dead.

The child was found in a bedroom, and responders performed CPR before getting the baby to the hospital.

Residents were evacuated from the building and given shelter at Sturgis Young Auditorium. Some were expected to be allowed to return to their apartments later Sunday, said the Sturgis Police Department.
