Suit filed in fatal fire


HAMPTON (KWWL) - A former tenant is suing the apartment complex where her toddler son and another woman were killed in a fire.

Renya Alonzo de Arroyo has filed suit against the two owners of the Hampton complex, saying they were negligent because there was no fire extinguisher in the apartment and no safe way to get out of second and third floors of the building during a fire.

The 22-month-old boy, Luis Rey Alonzo Garcia, and a 25-year-old woman, Mackenzie Blandau, were killed in the Feb. 14 fire.

Arroyo wasn't in the apartment during the fire.
