Fire Chief Bart Castleberry said an investigation is continuing into the cause of a fire that resulted in the death of a mother and three children at their home Monday night.
Jennifer Cissel and her children, Gwenette Snodgrass, 5, Chris Snodgrass, 4, and Arley Snodgrass, 3, were found inside the house at 124 Conway Blvd. The first fire truck arrived at the scene at 8:12 p.m., three minutes after the fire was reported. At that time, flames were coming out three sides of the house.
Coroner Patrick Moore said cause of the deaths has not been determined, but it is at this time believed to be smoke inhalation. The mother was found in the living room and the children were found in the bathroom, he said. Autopsies will be performed on all four bodies at the State Crime Lab.
