From KHQA:
LOUISIANA, MO. -- The Missouri State Fire Marshal continues its investigation into an early morning Thursday fire that took the life of a 3-year-old Louisiana, Mo. boy.

The fire killed Riley Miller who was pronounced dead at Pike County Memorial Hospital.

The original 911 call came in at 12:58 a.m. at 405 S. Main St. Firefighters arrived at the scene at 1:03 a.m.

A city police officer stunned Riley's stepfather Ryan Miller with a Taser gun three times as he tried to enter the burning house.

The parents were both taken to Memorial Medical Center's burn unit in Springfield, Ill. by family members for treatment. Ryan Miller suffered burns to his chest. Cathy Miller suffered a burn to the cornea in one of her eyes. Both were released from the hospital Thursday night.

The house was destroyed.

Lori Miller, Riley's grandmother, said police stunned Ryan Miller as he tried to get back in the house.

“He tried to get back in the house to get the baby,” Lori Miller said. “They took my son to jail because he tried to save his son.”
Earlier this year San Antonio, Texas officers did the same exact thing when they tasered a father trying to save his 8-month old infant from a house fire.
