Court documents: Burned photos to blame in Grape Street fire | Crime
Court documents obtained by News10NBC say burning photos started the fatal fire on Grape Street that killed four children in February.
Bobbie Kugler, 31 was charged with arson and manslaughter in connection with the fire on Friday. Kugler is the mother of the four children killed.
Court papers say the photos were of Kugler's ex-boyfriend and she lit them on fire on top of a dresser. Fire fighters were called the house around 1 a.m. the morning of February 18.
Kugler and her two-year-old were rescued on the first floor by fire fighters; three others were able to jump out of a window. Four of Kugler's children died.
Police say the manslaughter charge is because she didn't set the fire with the intention to kill the children rather she acted recklessly.
