They were identified as 31-year-old Katrice Daniels, 19-year-old Luis Calixto. Rescue officials also located another woman, who was unidentified, in the backyard of the house.The house was overtaken by the out of control blaze before officials could salvage the home. After police examined the bodies and discovered gunshot wounds in each of the three victims, detectives determined that this was an act of arson.
The only survivors of the massive blaze were the 2 children, who were in the least damaged room in the house. The 6-year-old woke up to the smell of smoke and removed his 2-year-old sister out of the house and escaped with no injuries, reported police. The 2 young children were transported to the hospital for safety precautions even though they were uninjured.
