Woman, daughter die in motor home fire near Amity


(Update: Names of victims; motor home had no smoke alarms)

AMITY, Ore. (AP) – A Yamhill County woman and her 8-year-old daughter died when a motor home caught fire.

The Yamhill Valley News-Register reports the fire began early Tuesday and engulfed the home south of Amity.

Capt. Chris Ray of the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office identified the mother as 37-year-old Honey Cosgrove and the girl as Nevaeh Applegate. The girl attended Amity Elementary School and was about to turn 9.

Four other children survived the blaze. The Amity School District said on its Facebook page that it will be looking for ways to provide support to those students.

Ray said the mother was out of the motor home when the fire started, and then went in. He said there’s no evidence of foul play, but investigators have yet to pinpoint the fire’s cause.

Amity Fire Chief Bruce Hubbard said the home lacked smoke alarms.
