Natalie Jefferson is still trying to grapple with the loss of most of her family. It was early last Thursday when she awoke to find her side of a two-family home in smoke and flames.
While authorities continue to investigate the cause of the fast-moving blaze, the owner of the home, Gerado Avalos, said he inspected the home in October and all the detectors were operable.
Police say they want to question a man who lived in the two-family home and hasn’t been seen since the blaze. Police have stressed that the man they are looking to speak to is not a suspect.
