State fire marshal can't determine cause of fatal Lost Nation house fire

LOST NATION, Ill. (WIFR) -- A state fire marshal says the cause of a Lost Nation house fire that killed a family of six in November cannot be determined.

Illinois State Fire Marshal's Office arson investigator Greg Castronovo reports the home just outside of Dixon was damaged so badly he could not examine all areas. Although a cause cannot be found, he does report arson is not suspected in the fire that killed two parents and four children.
