Fire victim remains in critical condition

 Lori Carrillo holds her daughter, Alee Malleck’s hand. Malleck remains sedated while doctor’s treat the severe burns she received in a house fire last week.


The mother of the woman seriously injured in last week’s house fire that killed five children, says she still has a long road ahead of her.

On Facebook, Lori Carrillo said Alee Malleck is hospitalized and remains sedated. 

In a Facebook message to the Record Monday, she said Alee is still in critical condition, but her vital signs were  mostly stable.

“The main concern is still the burns in her lungs,” she said. “She will remain heavily sedated and on the ventilator until they feel they have gotten as much of the charred, damaged tissue out that they can.” 

She asked for prayers for her daughter.

“Anyone that knows Alee, knows she’s a fighter. We just have to keep praying that she doesn’t stop fighting for her life,” she said.

She said they tried lowering Alee’s sedation to see if she can breathe on her own, but so far it has not been successful.
