Amber Cortez, Gloria Cortez Killed in Apartment Fire Accident in San Antonio, TX

Fires can be a bit more complex than folks realize, since the assumption is usually that the occupants did something wrong--left a stove on, a candle or cigarette lit, misuse of electronics, etc. In reality, though, there are many factors that need to be looked into. Was there a defective appliance in the residence? Was something like a water heater or gas stove recently serviced or replaced? Was the fire caused by a pre-existing issue the landlords neglected to address? Does the building have any issues with fire safety, such as broken smoke alarms? Likely or not, people lost their lives here. Their loved ones deserve to know they're getting the full story.
