“It brings his mother comfort knowing she chose to share his birth with so many — that so many got the opportunity to meet him,” Enoch told the Salt Lake Tribune this Wednesday.

While Enoch told reporters that he was unsure of how the fire began, he did admit that Adonijah was playing with matches before his sad death.

According to the report, Enoch’s 7-year-old daughter rescued her three-year-old brother from the same room Adonijah was napping in, but when she tried to go in to save him as well, the flames had grown.

“She said she was able to grab Adonijah’s hand but couldn’t get him to come out or … I’m not sure,” Enoch told the publication.

After Enoch was made aware of the fire, he put on a paint mask, extinguished the flames and grabbed the toddler, who was badly burned. A neighbor nurse performed CPR and paramedics came to the rescue, but by the time they arrived it was too late and Adonijah was dead.
