Young fire victim holding on

20-month-old Samantha Keddie is improving, police say.

The young survivor of a Surrey apartment fire that killed her twin sister is still in hospital fighting to recover from burns suffered in the blaze.

Twenty-month-old Samantha Keddie’s condition has been updated to serious from critical, police say.

Samantha was with her sister Ava in a Cedar Hills apartment on Jan. 4 when a light bulb ignited their bedding.

The girls were pulled from the fire by neighbours Simon and Matt Gallant, aged 25 and 28 respectively.

Ava died from her injuries on Jan. 8, but police say Samantha is holding on and improving somewhat.
