|Arizona Daily Star Monday, June 8, 2009 Edition: FINAL, Section: NEWS, Page A1 A day-care center fire Friday killed 42 babies, toddlers and other young children in the Sonoran capital of Hermosillo. The fire started at an adjoining tire and vehicle warehouse leased by the state government. It spread to the roof of the ABC Day Care, sending flames raining down on the children, an Hermosillo fire official said. When the fire broke out, an estimated 142 children, ranging in age from 6 months to 5 years, were in the day-care center along with six staffers. Authorities have said most victims died from smoke inhalation. Dozens of children remain hospitalized in Mexico and the United States, some in critical condition.|

We have been following this story closely. Hermosillo is a couple of hundred miles due south of Hooterville. Could anything be more heartbreaking?
