There was a fire that burned a house down. The local police are trying to find out how it started. There was a man and three children who are missing.

No one knows what happened to them. When the police first looked at the burned home, they did not see any bodies. They were not sure if the people were killed by the fire.

A home fire can be very dangerous. Many things can start a fire in the home. It is important that a home is clean and safe so fires will not be started.

The mother of the missing children could not find them. She did not know if they were in the home before it burned. She has not seen the father or her children since the fire.

The police are not sure how the fire started. Some people start fires on purpose. There is nothing that shows that the fire was started on purpose but the police want to make sure.
