Fire Investigators Determine Cause In Deadly Fire

Fire investigators have determined what caused the fire that killed 18-month-old Carlos Lopez Friday in Sulphur Springs.

They say his baby-sitter's 5-year-old child was playing with a lighter and started the blaze. It happened at the Spanish Trails apartments. Carlos was in the care of his baby-sitter at the time of the fire.

The case will go to the District Attorney's office to determine if any charges will be filed against the baby-sitter.

The victim's family does not have insurance. A fund has been set up to help pay for funeral costs at the Community Bank in Sulphur Springs.
