Father dies from fire that also killed wife and child

LAS VEGAS - A third victim has died from a deadly house fire on January 19.

Family members told 8 News Now that 39-year-old Andrew Ray died Wednesday from his injuries.

37-year-old mother Dianna Rose Bankston and 8-year-old daughter Kaysha Ray died last week from their injuries sustained in the fire. 

The fire happened in the early morning hours near Lake Mead and H Street in an apartment that did not appear to have a fire alarm, fire investigators said.

The couple's two oldest daughters escaped the flames with cuts to their bodies from crawling out of a broken window.

Meanwhile, the family said this is not the first time the apartment building has caught fire. While they believe electrical problems are to blame, fire investigators have not released the official cause.

The fire department did not find smoke alarms in the apartment.
