MEMPHIS, TN - Officials in Memphis say a second child who was critically injured in a weekend apartment fire has died.

A spokeswoman with LeBonheur Children's Medical Center in Memphis said two-year-old Cory Dotson died today.  The hospital had been treating him for critical injuries since Sunday's fire.

Five-year-old Jeremy Gunn died Sunday of smoke inhalation.

Police say the boys were in a second-story apartment when the fire broke out.

Investigators questioned the children's mothers yesterday, but didn't charge them.
