The seventh day into the cautious, painstaking search of the charred hulk of the historic Mizpah Hotel, one more victim was found in Reno's deadliest fire. Authorities say six of the twelve people who died in the Halloween night arson have been identified, although their names will not be released until relatives are notified. Acting Coroner Steve Finnell says fingerprints were used to confirm the names of the six, who died of smoke inhalation. The others will have to be identified through
dental records or DNA.
