NAPERVILLE (AP) – A third person has died after a house fire in suburban Chicago 2 months ago.

The Daily Herald reports that 21-year-old Allen Belaguas of Orland Park died Sunday at a hospice facility. He had been injured in a Dec. 19 Naperville house fire that killed a couple. Belaguas was working as a caregiver for 57-year-old Tom and 56-year-old Jan Lambert of Naperville. Two others in the home suffered minor injuries.

Belaguas’ mother, Zeta Pierson, says her son had been working for the family for 8 days when the fire happened. Family members described him as a fun-loving, caring and adventurous person who loved music and photography. Belaguas recently became a certified nursing assistant.
