The Daily Herald reports that 21-year-old Allen Belaguas of Orland Park died Sunday at a hospice facility. He had been injured in a Dec. 19 Naperville house fire that killed a couple. Belaguas was working as a caregiver for 57-year-old Tom and 56-year-old Jan Lambert of Naperville. Two others in the home suffered minor injuries.
Belaguas' mother, Zeta Pierson, says her son had been working for the family for eight days when the fire happened. Family members described him as a fun-loving, caring and adventurous person who loved music and photography. Belaguas recently became a certified nursing assistant.
