Neriza Fojas, Newlywed Nurse Killed In Limousine Fire, Had Bright Future

Posted: Updated:

FRESNO, Calif. — A relative of a newlywed who died along with four friends in a burning limousine says the young nurse was preparing to get her master's degree and was planning a large second wedding in the Philippines.

Christina Kitts said Monday that Neriza Fojas lived in Hawaii while she reviewed for her nursing exam, then took a job in Oakland, Calif., for two years before moving to Fresno, where she had been a nurse at Community Regional Medical Center for a year.

Four friends and the limo driver survived Saturday night's fire during a girls' night out, but Fojas and four other friends were unable to climb out. Their bodies were found pressed up against the driver's partition that they had been trying to scramble through.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
