A 13 month old girl died in a house fire in Culpeper. Several of Amira Norwood's family members managed to escape the house Thursday.

Her grandmother even tried to crawl through a window to save the girl. Investigators think bad wiring in an air conditioner started the fire. They also say the home did not have smoke detectors.
