NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- Charges are expected to be filed in connection with a house fire that killed three children in New Albany.
Law enforcement officials are staying tight-lipped until the press conference later today. But they do tell WDRB that charges are pending against at least one person.
The fire happened in the early hours of Saturday, Jan. 4th at a home on Ealy Street. Three children under the age of six died in the fire -- 6-year-old Tai'zah, 4-year old Tyrese, and 2-year-old Trinity.
Officials believe the fire started in the front bedroom, and investigators initially told WDRB it was caused by a space heater. Now New Albany Police say there are new findings that warrant criminal charges.
The investigation is now focusing on an individual police believe played a role in the fire. Sources tell WDRB that a warrant has been filed in Floyd County.
This has been a very emotional time for the family. The three children were buried on Saturday, and the family expressed appreciation for support from the community at a vigil last week.
Five-year-old Taty'ana is the only child that survived the fire. She continues to improve at a hospital in Indianapolis, after suffering burns over 20 percent of her body. All three of her siblings died in the fire, 6-year-old Tai'zah, 4-year old Tyrese, and 2-year-old Trinity.
The press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. at the City-County building in New Albany will be streamed live on WDRB.com.
