SPEARFISH, S.D. - Fire officials in Spearfish say they continue to investigate the cause of a fatal fire April 1, and released no further information in a press release today.
The release noted that on Friday of last week, imaging of the scene was conducted using computer imaging equipment. Other than that, authorities had no further information to release.
The fire claimed the lives of five children who were sleeping in an upstairs bedroom of the home on Ames Street.
Authorities say the children died of smoke inhalation.
A tremendous outpouring of support has been seen since the fire to help the victim's families.
Authorities say they don't anticipate another release of information into the fire investigation until next week.
