Woman brain dead, 2 daughters critical after fire

Posted: Updated:

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- A deputy coroner says a woman who was critically injured when fire swept through her apartment has been declared brain dead.

Deputy Vanderburgh County Coroner Brian Claspell says 24-year-old Kristyn Frazier was being kept on life support Thursday until her organs could be donated. Claspell says she was declared brain dead at 7:44 a.m. Thursday.

St. Mary's Medical Center spokesman Rick Peltier said Frazier' daughters, 4-year-old Aaliyah and 3-year-old Akeleigh, were in critical but stable condition and hooked up to ventilators Thursday.

The Evansville Courier & Press reported the apartment building's owner, R&I Properties, is facing a $2,500 city fine for not having smoke detectors in the apartments. A phone at the company rang unanswered Thursday.
