Cause Of Fatal Chesley Fire Not Considered Suspicious

What sparked a fatal fire in a home in Chesley earlier this week is still unknown, however, whatever caused it is not suspicious.

Manny Garcia is the lead investigator from the Office of the Fire Marshal and is working on a lead that the fire may have started outside the home.

What is known is that the extensive damage to the site included the loss of two vehicles. There were also propane tanks, cylinders and oxyacetylene tanks on the property at the time of the fire, but they are not being considered as the starting point.

The office of the coroner is also involved in the investigation as three bodies were pulled from the fire and will be working to identify the remains.

Police have not released any names, but a GoFundMe page started by a family friend has raised just over $30,000 as of Thursday morning.

The mother remains in a London hospital and is being treated for injuries she suffered during the June 11 fire, while an infant is with other family members.
