The three persons who were killed when a fire destroyed the three-storey Chabod Lubavitcher House on the University of California at Los Angeles campus in Westwood early yesterday have been identified. They were; Dean Ross, a 17-year-old student from Beverly Hills; Malkin Natan Chanukovich, 24, a recent immigrant from the Soviet Union who was living temporarily at the house; and Kenneth Green, 32, a handyman. The Fire Department, which has estimated the damage to the house at 51 million, is still investigating what it termed a fire of suspicious origin.
