According to Chief Bryan Richards of the Winona Police Department, the house fire that took place on Sunday, April 7, 2013, is still under investigation with the Winona Police Department and the Smith County Fire Marshall's Office.

The exact cause of the fire is still undetermined, but foul play is not expected at this time.

Authorities have not personally spoken with Heather and Brian Dear about the fire yet, because offcials feels they have just encountered the worst type of loss imaginable and they need this time to grieve and recover from their own injuries.

Police would like to thank the Winona Community for their amazing support for all the families involved.

I agree with the fire department investigators, I only wish CPS would have had the same empathy for the family whose son fell into the septic tank.
