Woodcrest Condominium Fire Victims Identified
WCVB reports that Susan Astle, 67, and Paul Deslauriers, 77, were the couple who died in Saturday's late night fire.
Officials have identified the couple who died in Saturday's late night fatal fire at the Woodcrest Condominiums.
The fire took the lives of Susan Astle, 67, and Paul Deslauriers, 77, according to WCVB.
Fire Marshal Stephen Coan previously said said he believed the fire started in the couple's home. He said the couple's son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren, all from Maine, were injured and taken to hospitals.
The blaze broke out around 11:30 p.m. Saturday and took firefighters from multiple communities more than two hours to get under control.
"They had come to pay a visit," Coan at a Sunday morning press conference. "And our understanding is they had just arrived yesterday and this would have been their first night."
According to Curran, one of the children, a seven-year-old boy, was taken by Med-Flight to a Boston hospital with severe burns on his hands and other parts of his body. He is expected to survive. The other three family members were taken by ambulance to area hospitals, with burns and smoke inhalation.
