Authorities responded just before 4 a.m. and discovered the infant inside, while three other people, including a 3-year-old boy, escaped the fire with no injuries. The baby was identified as Camden Ryder Clonts.

A GoFundMe page has been started to raise money for his surviving family members, including brother Asher.

“[Mother] Ashley [Grasty] and her family are suffering from a loss that no mother should have to suffer from,” the page read.
