Firefighters putting out a fire in a Brooklyn apartment early Tuesday morning found the body of a 2-year-old girl who’d been left alone in the apartment by her stripper mother who’d gone out partying.

Kaleenah Muldrow’s tiny body was found under a bed, presumably after hiding there in a panic when the blaze broke out around an hour earlier. Her mother, 20-year-old Leila Aquino, didn’t return home until about 9:30 a.m.

Firefighters had put out the fire, but didn’t even know a child was inside until Aquino showed up and cried that her baby was in there.

She told investigators that she’d left the little girl with someone…but then claimed she didn’t know who she left her with.

She’s been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment.
