CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO)- Nine people, including eight children lost their lives in a deadly fire.  Five years ago today, someone set fire to a house on East 87th Street in Cleveland. 

In the years since Cleveland's deadliest house fire ever, people like Ja-quisha Pressley are determined never to forget the nine people killed in the arson.

Antun Lewis has been charged with the arson, accused of breaking into the house, pouring gas on the floor and then torching the home.

But the frustration here continues to grow because after five years justice has still not been served.
