The Parker County Fire Marshal’s Office has made an official statement on the deadly house fire that killed a young mother and her 3-year-old son Monday in southern Parker County.
George Teague said that with the assistance of the Tarrant County Arson Task Force, the physical examination of the fire site at 224 Paula Court has been completed. Several items that may have been associated with the cause of the fire have been removed and sent to the proper forensic laboratory for a more detailed examination that was not possible at the scene.
They continue to interview friends, family and the neighbors to attain a better insight of what might have happened that morning. Not until all interviews are completed, the forensic reports are returned, and the Medical Examiners examination is complete along with the toxicology report on the victims, will a final determination of the probable cause be released.
