n 11-year-old girl killed in a fire at her Brooklyn home called her mother to ask her to pick up some ice cream at the store just minutes before the fatal blaze, the distraught mom told The Post.
“I really don’t know what happened,” grieving mother Limor Tevet-Steinmetz said Tuesday. “We went to the store for 20 minutes. She called back and asked to get her ice cream. That’s the last thing I heard from her.”
Firefighters dispatched to the home about 10 p.m. Monday said they found young Shir Tevet unconscious when they arrived at the Ocean Parkway apartment in Kensington.
The girl was transported to Maimonides Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. Authorities said she died as a result of smoke inhalation.
Tevet-Steinmetz said the girl was in her bedroom when the fire broke out.
Fire officials said the fire was not believed to be suspicious.
“My daughter was exceptional, she was remarkable, one of a kind,” Tevet-Steinmetz said. “She was my everything. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do now.”
The girl’s father said the family was scheduled to leave the country Tuesday to bury her in Israel.
