April 3rd, 1984
On April 3rd 1984 firefighters responded to a fire at a house located on St Louis Ave. Firefighters inside found a deceased 20 year old woman, Dawn Wright, and a severely injured 74 year old woman, Lucille Anderson, who was the grandmother of Wright. Anderson was in the burn center at Hillcrest Medical Center, suffering from second-degree burns to her face and hands. She was found unconscious beside a barred and locked door. Her granddaughter was found dead under a bed after the blaze. She apparently was overcome by smoke. Security bars on windows and locks on doors may have prevented the two women from escaping while their house burned. The fire was ruled as an arson and a suspect was never identified leaving the case unsolved.
