An apartment fire in Lakewood is now being considered a homicide investigation by the Lakewood Police Department, according to LPD Public Information Officer John Romero.
The Tiffany Square apartment building burned down around 4 a.m. on Oct. 31 leaving nine injured and two dead. The three who were injured were transported to a local hospital — a mother, father and child — according to West Metro Fire. The two found dead were Kathleen Payton, 31, and her daughter Jazmine Payton-Aguayo, 10 according to a Nov. 1 statement released by the Lakewood Police Department.
At least 14 units were damaged by the fire, with residents of all 32 units being displaced.
According to Romero, the fire appeared to be intentionally set and two male juveniles — whose names are not being released because of their age — are now wanted. Warrants have been obtained for them for 1st Degree Murder and 1st Degree Arson.
The American Red Cross is assisting residents in finding shelter, according to West Metro Fire.
