Preliminary findings indicate that the door of the apartment where the lighting began, which is located on the second and third floors, remained open and allowed the thick smoke to come out and disperse into the stairwell. Daniel Negro, one of the firefighters on the scene, said at a briefing reporters that victims were found in the stairwell on each floor, some of whom apparently suffered from smoke inhalation and were unable to find their way down. Negro added that the fire apparently broke out due to the use of a “faulty electric heat spreader”.

Asked if people may have jumped out of windows during the fire, Negro said some may have fallen in an attempt to climb ladders placed by firefighters. He added that he did not hear any reports of anyone jumping out of the window before firefighters arrived.
