Family members who survived Brooklyn house fire released from hospital

The surviving members of a Brooklyn family whose house burned down in a fire started by a Hanukkah menorah were released from the hospital.

Yossi Azan and two of his children — daughter Shalit, 16, and son Daniel, 15 — were released from a local hospital this week, the Yeshiva World News reported.

His wife, Aliza, and three other children — sons Moshe, 11 and Yitzah, 7, and a daughter, Henrietta, 3 — were killed in the blaze early on the morning of Dec. 18, 2017. Two younger boys, a son currently living with a grandfather in Israel and a cousin, escaped with minor injuries.
