UPDATE: BREMEN, Ky. (2/4/18) — Kentucky State Police confirmed that 89-year-old Mitchell Kyle (obituary) succumbed to injuries from the house fire that severely injured a 5-year-old child yesterday in Bremen.

Trooper James Austin of Post 2 said the fire was called into authorities at 7:30 a.m. Saturday. A neighbor, Benjamin Harrison, entered the home at 3644 Kentucky 2551 and managed to get the 5-year-old outside. The boy was taken by air ambulance to Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee.

Austin said the cause of the fire has not been determined but is believed to have started in the front of the house. No foul play is suspected, he said.

The child’s mother, Gina Kyle Case, has identified him on her Facebook page as Levi Case (obituary). She has kept friends updated through her Facebook posts since Levi’s arrival at Vanderbilt yesterday.

Today, Gina Case posted that her son was being given a blood transfusion and that he has been on a vent to keep his lungs open.

Hundreds have posted support and photos of Levi on their Facebook pages. Several people have started or are participating in fundraising efforts to support the family including a gofundme account. To go to the page, click HERE.
