Jackie Robinson's Brother-in-Law Killed in House Fire in Exposition Park

Family members say the man who died in a house fire in Exposition Park is the brother-in-law of a baseball legend.  Relatives identified 90-year-old Ray Isum as the man killed in a fast-moving fire yesterday, and say he's the brother-in-law of baseball icon Jackie Robinson. 

Isum's son said his father died with a championship ring given to him by his sister, Robinson's widow.  Firefighters say there were no working smoke alarms, and their rescue efforts were hindered by excessive storage inside the home.
