Arson investigators return to mobile home
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Arson investigators returned to the scene of the deadly mobile home fire on Grassy Lane Friday morning.
Police say investigators are following up on the cause of the fire that took the lives of four young children last week. The Allen County Coroner’s office identified the children as 10-year-old Matthew Damron, 5-year-old Johnnie Mann-Goff, 3-year-old Jefferson Goff, and 2-year-old Rosalynn Goff. The cause of death for all children was ruled to be smoke inhalation and thermal burns, the manner of death is pending investigation. Four adults who were able to escape the deadly flames tried to get the four children out of the mobile home, but said the heat and flames were too much for them to get to the children.
A vigil is planned tonight at 7 p.m. at the Dupont Estates clubhouse.
