CINCINNATI - The second University of Cincinnati student injured in a New Year's Day fire near campus died this morning. A Facebook page set up for 20 year old Ellen Garner says she died today as a result of her injuries.
Garner and another student, 21 year old Chad Kohls, had to be rescued from the third floor of the off-campus home on Digby Avenue in University Heights on January 1st. Fire investigators said the fire started when a blanket got too close to a space heater.
Kohls died last Monday at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and was laid to rest three days ago.
Funeral services for Garner will reportedly take place this coming Friday in Tipp City.
