2 dead including girl, 10, in Levy County fire


BRONSON, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a fire in a north Florida subdivision has killed two people, including a 10-year-old girl.

The Levy County Sheriff's Office reports that the fire occurred Wednesday morning in the University Oaks subdivision near Bronson.

Authorities say 78-year-old Elizabeth Fredrick and the girl, Rhiannon Rickmyer, died in the blaze.

A sheriff's office spokesman told The Gainesville Sun ( http://bit.ly/1oem2Ym ) that there is no evidence of foul play.

The school that Rickmyer attended says it will provide grief counselors for the other children.
