A woman and her 4-year-old grandson died in a hospital early Thursday less than an hour after being hurt in a single-family house fire in North Toledo, authorities said.

Tamara Kynard, 44, of 3408 Maple St., was pronounced dead at 1:50 a.m. at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, where Maki Carter was pronounced dead at 1:56 a.m., according to Steve Kahle, a Lucas County coroner’s investigator.

Firefighters arrived about 1 a.m. at the Maple address and pulled the victims from the burning 1½-story wood frame house, where a man had jumped to safety from a second-floor window, Mr. Kahle said.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze and left the scene by 4:10 a.m.

Arson investigators were called to the scene, according to the Toledo Fire Department.
