Police: 1-year-old alone when fire started

A father in Livonia is charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child after an apartment fire.

Jason Gibson, 30, was arrested Monday after The Livonia Fire Department and Livingston County Sheriff’s Office responded to a fire on Lake Glen Drive.

Investigators say a stove fire had spread to the wall while a 1-year-old was inside the house alone.

Deputies said Gibson left his 1-year-old in the apartment while he went to the store.

Gibson told investigators he thought he turned the stove off.

Gibson allegedly told investigators that his 11-year-old daughter, who was playing outside, was supposed to be watching the infant. 

The children are being cared for by a family friend.

The Red Cross is helping Gibson find temporary shelter.
