According to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office, 4-year-old Krisdon Williams-Pollard died Friday afternoon at Children’s Hospital. On Sunday, the Medical Examiner’s Office ruled that the boy died of smoke inhalation.
His 7-year-old brother, KiDonn Pollard-Ford, was also killed in the fire, which broke out around 3 a.m. Thursday at the Eastland Apartments.
