FIRE VICTIMS IDENTIFIED AS TWIN VALLEY ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

(West Alexandria, OH)--The two victims in the fatal weekend fire on U.S. 35 between Eaton and West Alexandria were identified Monday as Twin Valley South third and fourth graders Malachi and Malea Bradburn.  "It's hard.  I just kind of keep waking up and looking out my window to see if it's real," said Jon Boomershine, who lives next door.  "One of the things about small, rural districts is that everybody knows everybody.  Things like this happen and everybody has some kind of connection to it," said Twin Valley Elementary Superintendent Dr. Clint Moore.  Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the fire.  The initial indication was that the kids were left home alone overnight and that no adult was present when the fire broke out.
