A mother has died of her injuries following a large house fire in east Charlotte. According to the Charlotte Fire Department, Ana Sanchez passed away in the hospital Thursday evening. Her 2-year-old daughter, Aranza, succumbed to her injuries hours before her mother's passing. Sanchez's 8-year-old son, Alex, died of his injuries from the fire Wednesday, per family. Sanchez's 3-month-old son is listed in critical condition. Leticia Mendez-Dominguez was also in the house when the fire started. She tells FOX 46 Charlotte she didn't have time to get her phone or shoes - just grab her daughter and run. The last words she heard from her sister-in-law, Sanchez, was her yelling for Leticia to get out of the house.
