House Fire Update

The State Fire Marshall's office tells us the fire does not appear suspicious. However, they say one of the boys was caught playing with a lighter earlier in the day, it was taken away but a lighter was recovered from the room where the fire started.

So they're not ruling out that kids playing with a lighter sparked the deadly blaze.

Investigators are checking other possibilities at this hour, right now an engineer is examining the home's electrical system.
