ODESSA, Texas (AP) - A mobile home fire in West Texas that killed a woman and two of her children has claimed the life of a third youngster.
An official with American Heritage Cemetery and Funeral Home said Tuesday that services are pending for 3-year-old Janet Luque (LOO'-kay) of Odessa, her two siblings and their mother.
The Ector County Sheriff's Office says the fire early Friday in Odessa killed 40-year-old Maria Marta, her 13-year-old son Omar Gallegos and her 5-year-old daughter Jazmine Luque. The woman's 3-year-old daughter was transported to a Lubbock hospital where she died Sunday.
Two male relatives men who were in the mobile home suffered lesser injuries.
Sgt. Gary Duesler (DOOZ'-ler) said Tuesday that authorities do not suspect foul play in the fire. The cause remains under investigation.
