A Lakewood couple killed Wednesday in an apartment fire have been identified as Leroy and Ruth Williams.
Investigators have not determined what started the blaze at the Morningtree Park apartments on 83rd Avenue Southwest, destroying the couple’s unit and damaging two others.
Leroy Williams, 64, made it out of his apartment and yelled for help but went back inside to help his 78-year-old wife, who had been ill and wasn’t mobile.
Firefighters discovered their bodies after extinguishing the fire.
