Yesterday's blaze struck two blocks from the apartment that went up in flames on Feb. 24, killing Stephen Adelipour , 21, of Great Neck, N.Y., and Rhiannon McCuish , also 21, of Mashpee. A third student, Steven Boursiquot , 22, of Dix Hills, N.Y., suffered burns on 20 percent of his body and was to undergo a second skin-grafting surgery earlier this month. Boursiquot was listed last night in fair condition at Massachusetts General Hospital.
That fire was caused by a candle left lit after a power outage; it also followed a small party in the apartment, neighbors said.
