Bolivar fatal fire: Surviving baby in foster care

SHINGLEHOUSE, Pa. —As funeral arrangements are being made for the three who died in the house fire in Bolivar on Sunday, there is a new focus on the one child who escaped the fire alive, 1-year-old Charles Holmes.

The child is in a foster home in Coudersport, Pa., and one of the family members said she deserves custody.

Barbara Alaimo, the great-grandmother to the surviving child, said she has six children who have never been arrested and the worst thing to ever happen to her is a speeding ticket.
