More sad news out of West Lafayette today as an apartment fire in the 200 block of S River Rd. caused one fatality and several non-life threatening injuries. The JC reports:
"Fire rousted Purdue students from their sleep and out of the three-story apartment complex in the 200 block of South River Road around 5 a.m. Thursday, and all but one of them made it out.
West Lafayette Fire Chief Tim Heath said around 11:20 a.m. that there was one fatality in the fire. The body was found in an apartment in the south end of the apartment complex and was removed around 11:10 a.m. by a Tippecanoe County deputy coroner.
Officials have not released the name of the fire victim, pending notification of the next of kin."
Another death in the Purdue community so soon after what happened to Andrew Boldt. Not to mention the fact several students are searching for a place to live so close to finals. Hopefully we see a similar outpouring of support for the family of the victim, and those who have been misplaced by the fire.
