The fire killed 14- year old Lacey Wright and her younger sisters, Jessica and Christina. Authorities initially treated the blaze as suspicious because it did NOT start in an area with a heat source such as a stove or fire place. But after months of working on the case-- investigators say the fatal fire will be ruled ACCIDENTAL. Authorities were NEVER able to determine how the fire started. But say there is NO evidence that it was intentionally set or that it was the result of criminal activity.
