Second person dies after Torrington house fire
TORRINGTON, Conn. (AP) — A man who was rescued from a house fire in Connecticut has died just days after his wife.
Fire officials say 65-year-old John Needham died at a hospital burn unit Wednesday, five days after his 68-year-old wife, Donna Needham, died.
Fire crews were called to the Needhams’ home in Torrington Jan. 3 after receiving a report of two people possibly trapped in a burning building.
They arrived to find a raging fire and John Needham outside the home with burns.
One firefighter suffered minor burns when rescuing one of the victims.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
