Five days after a fire engulfed her Laffer Avenue home in Akron, a 6-year-old girl remains in critical condition at Akron Children’s Hospital, fire department spokeswoman Lt. Sierjie Lash said Tuesday.

The house in the 1200 block of Laffer Avenue was in flames Thursday when firefighters arrived around 7 p.m. and the child had to be rescued from the basement.

The girl’s father had attempted to rescue the girl and suffered burns on his arm.

Lash said firefighters are still trying to determine what caused the fire.
