WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Authorities in Worcester say an overnight fire that killed a 96-year-old woman and critically injured her 84-yearold sister is not considered to be suspicious.

District Attorney Joseph Early said Rose Jordan died in the fire that was reported at about 2:45 a.m. Wednesday. He said Eleanor Rinaldo suffered smoke inhalation and is at UMass Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Rinaldo’s 48-year-old son John Rinaldo was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

Early said all three lived in the two-story wood-frame house on Uxbridge Street.

The women’s brother Charles Spaziante told the Telegram & Gazette that Jordan “kept everybody together,” and was a great cook and baker.

Her caregiver Barbara Hogan said she still loved to cook, and cherished a pillow with a favorite family phrase “Love you more.”
