Victim of Paradise Manor fire dies of brain aneurysm
(February 23, 2007) Sources at City Hall have confirmed that one of the residents displaced by the fire at Paradise Manor died last week of a brain aneurysm. The mother of four including one adult daughter, died Wednesday, February 14th. The mother, who has not been named, was one of five families that lost everything in the deadly fire at Paradise Manor that killed three young children.
The three children that died in the fire are not related to woman who did of a brain aneurysm. Sources told YpsiNews that her death was likely not the result of stress related to the fire. Few other details are known.
The funeral was held this week. Money raised to pay for the funeral of the three children is expected to cover some of the costs of her funeral. Case managers from the county are working with the family and other agencies to move quickly to place the children with other family members.
Sources have privately told YpsiNews that Washtenaw County is working to get a ‘portable’ Section 8 voucher for the family for new housing. Calls to the Ypsilanti Housing Commission for comment were not returned.
