An infant died in a fire Thursday in northern Lauderdale County.  The fire happened at a home on County Road 13 in Central Heights.

It started before 12 p.m.  The house was engulfed in flames.  Six fire departments responded and battled the flames for 45 minutes before they could get inside.

Wind gusts also helped spread the flames.  Family members say six-month-old Ryleigh Brooke Terrell was asleep inside the living room when the fire started.
