Trial Begins In Fatal Hotel Fire
Jury selection begins today for the man who is charged with one federal count of arson resulting in death. Brenda Brazell still remembers waking to the screams of "Help! My Baby" and then desperately searching a smoke-filled hotel hallway for her son and granddaughter, who were staying a few rooms away. Brazell's family survived, but the crying woman and her baby boy were among the six guests who died in the early morning hotel blaze in Greenville, South Carolina in 2004.
