EVERETT — Detectives still are looking for tips after a fire killed a resident of the Colby Square Apartments last month.
Flames broke out around 10:20 p.m. Dec. 21 in the two-story, L-shaped complex at 2229 Colby St. Escaping tenants jumped from their balconies to safety.
One woman, 76, suffered smoke inhalation. She died four days later, on Christmas. A second person was hurt escaping the fire.
Damage to the 14-unit building was estimated at $800,000.
Officer Aaron Snell declined to label the fire as suspicious Thursday, because the cause has not been confirmed. Police and fire investigators are looking for surveillance footage, cell phone videos, eyewitness accounts or anything else that could help to solve the case.
