The Highland Township Fire Department responded around 12:18am to the 2000 block of Tartan Court after reports of a fire. After it was extinguished, the department requested assistance from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Fire Investigations Unit. A report states a 4-year-old girl sustained burns to 20% of her body on her hands and arms. The 40-year-old father of the child suffered smoke inhalation. Both were transported to a hospital and last listed in stable condition.
