SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco fire officials say a woman and her 3-year-old son who died in an apartment blaze were found in the apartment's bathroom.
The victims have been identified as 32-year-old Esther Ioane and her son, Santana Williams. They were inside the apartment when the blaze tore through it around 10 a.m. Wednesday.
The apartment is in a public housing complex in the city's Visitacion Valley neighborhood. A total of three apartments were damaged, although officials tell the San Francisco Chronicle smoke detectors in all three were working.
Santana suffered burns and died at a hospital. Some residents on the building's upper floor had to jump to safety from windows.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.©2014 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
