COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- A 3-year old boy is dead following a fire early Friday in Columbus's Hilltop neighborhood.

It broke out around 6:30 a.m. in the 1500 block of Humphrey Avenue, south of West Mound Street.

Franklin Township fire crews discovered the boy's body in the back of the house. His name hasn't been released yet.
