WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The victim found dead after a fire that gutted several apartments in a building where many Purdue University students live was identified Friday.
The victim from Thursday's pre-dawn fire was identified as 22-year-old Cody Day from Connersville, Indiana.
Officials told the Journal & Courier that Day was found dead in the three-story building a few blocks from the southeastern edge of Purdue's campus.
Other residents were taken to a nearby hospital with smoke inhalation. The fire's cause wasn't immediately determined.
Purdue spokeswoman Liz Evans says the school is offering help to students displaced less than two weeks before the start of spring semester final exams.
