A funeral was held Saturday for a woman who died after an apartment fire nearly two weeks ago.

Taneshia Smith was found in a bathtub by a maintenance worker after the fire March 13 at Olive Grove Apartments, located off Karen Avenue, near Lamb Boulevard. .

Her family says the Clark County Fire Department should have done more to find her. They said if they could have seen her in the bathtub, maybe she wouldn't have died.

Firefighters said they checked the entire kitchen, which is the area that caught fire.

The Clark County coroner has not yet released Smith's official cause of death.
