State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today released a statement expressing her deepest sympathies towards the families who have lost children in a recent string of house fires in Akron:

“Our community was recently devastated again by another house fire. In less than a year, we have lost nine children between three house fires. No family should ever have to experience losing an innocent child in such a heart wrenching tragedy.

“I will be working to do my part to see what can be done at the state level to help prevent future fatalities. I am so grateful for the hard work and bravery of Akron’s first responders, however, I hope these accidents can encourage local residents to learn more about fire safety and encourage families to talk about emergency planning.”

Galonski represents Ohio’s 35th district, which is comprised of parts of Akron and Barberton.
