Apartment fire kills new mother

The mother of a 2-week-old baby who was
pulled from her burning apartment Thursday,
Aug. 23, died after she went back inside in an
attempt to save her dogs.

Houston Fire Department officials say the
two-alarm blaze broke out about 1:10 a.m. at
the Southpoint apartments in the 12800 block of
Roydon at Featherwood.

Neighbors were able to help Carrie Jordan, 38,
and her infant son, Nicholas, escape the fl ames,
but when the woman went back inside to retrieve
her dogs, she did not return. Firefi ghters said they
found her collapsed on the floor. She was rushed
to a hospital in critical condition and later died.

The infant was not injured, and is reportedly
now staying with his grandmother, who was also
able to escape from the fire.
