Second Person Has Died From Fire In Johnstown

A second person has died following a Cambria County fire last week in Westmont.

School officials at Bishop McCort released a statement Monday saying Vindy Kohan, a freshman there, has died.

Wednesday, crews responded to a house fire on Fayette Street in Westmont Borough.

The fire claimed the life of 22-year-old Grant Jeanjaquet and injured four others.

Cambria County Coroner Jeff Lees said Jeanjacquet, a senior at Saint Vincent College, suffered “toxic thermal injuries” while attempting to escape the first floor of the home.

Kohan was hospitalized in Pittsburgh when she died.

Multiple GoFundMe pages along with fundraisers have been organized by the community to help the family during this time.
