Fire that killed IU student probed

October 3, 2011

Authorities say investigators haven’t found any signs of criminal activity in connection with the fire that killed an Indiana University student Saturday at an apartment complex near the Bloomington campus. The state fire marshal’s office is helping city fire investigators determine what caused the blaze at the Terra Trace Apartments. The fire killed 19-year-old Renee Ohrn of Gary and destroyed 12 apartments. Ohrn was prom queen this spring at Andrean High School in Merrillville and was a starter on the school’s soccer team.
