Is this who you are speaking of:

Boy dies, four others injured in Bridgeton house fire

By MATTHEW VERRINDER
The Associated Press

BRIDGETON, N.J. - An 11-year-old boy visiting with relatives was killed early Sunday when a fast-moving fire roared through a Bridgeton home and an adjacent apartment, causing a smoky blaze that left four other people seriously injured.

Firefighters found Brandon Merced of Brooklyn, N.Y. in a rear bedroom of the apartment where his aunt and uncle lived, officials said. The cause of death was not immediately known, and it was not clear when or if an autopsy would be performed.

The fire started around 3:30 a.m., apparently within a common wall between the two structures, Bridgeton Police Det. Lt. Michael Gaimari said. Investigators have not determined what sparked the blaze, but said it was not considered suspicious.

Both the home and the apartment were severely damaged by the fire and were declared uninhabitable. The couple who own the structures, Joseph and Donna Roland-Leipold, were sleeping when the blaze broke out, but were able to safely escape after those inside the apartment alerted them to the fire.


Three people - Merced's 15-year-old cousin, Elisa Vargas, also of Brooklyn; his aunt, Josephine Marrero, 43, and her husband, Lawrence Kantrowitz, 63 - sustained burns and suffered smoke inhalation. They were all flown to the Chester-Crozier Burn Center in Upland, Pa., where they were listed in critical but stable condition Sunday night.

The couple's 8-year-old son, Adam Kantrowitz, was taken to Southern Jersey Regional Medical center in Vineland, where he was treated for smoke inhalation and released.

Ana Gonzalez, who lives near the home, said she saw a half-dressed woman flee from the home, screaming that there were children still inside. Firefighters from Bridgeton and several other nearby towns arrived soon after and battled the blaze for more than four hours before it was placed under control just before 8 a.m.
