Jupin had been in critical condition ever since. A fifth person in the house, Patricia Ann Hatfield 46, escaped injury when she hurried outside for a garden hose to try to
extinguish the blaze but, she was unable to return with the hose. The fire apparently was started by the 3-year-old boy who was playing with a cigarette lighter. A bed caught fire first.
