Anderson Guest House fire claims 11th victim

The Nov. 27 Anderson Guest House fire has claimed an 11th victim.
Reports indicate the man died at a Springfield hospital.

Despite the 11 deaths and the way which he has apparently skirted the law for the past two decades, Guest House owner Robert Dupont told Associated Press he intends to appeal the state decision to close the Guest Houses and move their residents to other facilities:

"We're going to appeal," DuPont said in a brief telephone interview Thursday with The Associated Press. "They shouldn't have taken the licenses - there's been nothing committed to have a license be taken."
