How did Merlyn Vasquez die? – Cause of Death

The Elizabeth mayor’s office said that Merlyn Vasquez, who had been hospitalized in critical condition since the Oct. 5 fire at the store on Elizabeth Avenue and Jacques Street, had died late last week. Her two daughters — 8-year-old Paola Marquez and 10-year-old Daniella Marquez — died in the blaze, along with an 11-year-old friend, Elizabeth Correas. Investigators believe the fire may have started inside a soda machine in the store as they shopped and spread.

Officials have said the victims tried to escape through a rear stairway when the flames erupted but encountered a metal cage surrounding the area and no exit. The bodies of the 8- and 11-year-olds were recovered Monday night; the 10-year-old was found under debris in the same rear stairway area the next morning along with another victim, 41-year-old Candida Martinez del Reyes, a mother of four.
