Police: Woman hurt in Neptune fire dies from her injuries
NEPTUNE, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a woman hurt in a fire at a central New Jersey apartment complex this week has died from her injuries.
Neptune police say 40-year-old township resident Kimia Braxton died Friday at a hospital, three days after the fire that also seriously injured her 6-year-old son. The child remained hospitalized Saturday in stable condition.
The fire broke out late Tuesday night in Braxton's first-floor unit at the Jumping Brook apartments on Route 33. Responding firefighters soon entered the apartment and found Braxton and the child unconscious.
Authorities have said the unit had no working smoke detectors.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but authorities have said it appears to have been accidental.
