Investigating structure fires can be very challenging for many reasons.

It can sometimes be a major challenge just to identify the origin of a fire. Even if no accelerants are detected, it does not immediately rule out arson as a potential cause.

Right now this death is being investigated as fire related according to the City of Temple. If the evidence leads detectives in a different direction, it is likely the public's help will be a great asset.

In situations like this, you hope it is nothing more than accident, but even then you are in disbelief because of wondering how a tragedy could have been avoided.

When will the investigation be complete?


Our hearts go out to the victim, their family and friends, and all the neighbors who will now attempt to move forward with life without someone they knew. Check out this article with KCEN for more information.
