Doris Bergman and Albert Sassoe Jr Died in House fire
She made a 911 call to herself from inside the residence, but the call was dropped before enough information was provided to the dispatcher. When firefighters arrived at the scene, the house was already on fire and they discovered the lifeless bodies of the couple and their pet. The incident was reported around 2:20 a.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department said.
LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey explained at the scene that before they could determine the situation, the call to the house was disconnected. The “intensive” fire apparently originated in the kitchen and living room. “When searching the premises, the firefighters located a man, a woman and a lifeless cat inside the burned house. Beyond medical or veterinary assistance, they were determined to be dead at the scene,” Humphrey was quoted. LAFD said the home had no operating fire sprinklers.

Bergman’s longtime friend, fashion designer Sue Wong, confirmed the news of her tragic passing on her Facebook page, where she described Bergman as a “good friend.” “I am beyond devastated to learn right now that my good friend Doris Bergman died in an arson fire yesterday along with her husband Albert and her pets,” she wrote. Sue, originally from China, added that her home was “completely on fire.” She also said that she spoke with Bergman last week.
Sue herself noted that her Doris had sounded “pretty delusional and hallucinatory, probably from the pain pills and maybe she was heavily medicated”. She “told me that she was lying on the floor and that she couldn’t sit up because her back and shoulders were sagging,” she said. “She asked me when the two masseurs I was sending were coming to treat her and would she perform a tea ceremony with them? Honestly, we had never talked about such a thing,” Sue added.
Wong said that she is completely heartbroken by this loss. “We had a good mental and intellectual bond.” She said she will miss Bergman’s “great sardonic wit, her intelligence, her generosity of spirit and her wicked dark sense of humor.”
