LAKE OZARK (AP) — Fire investigators suspect a cigarette or errant spark caused a fire that killed four brothers in Missouri.A report from the state fire marshal's office shows that the fire started in April after the boy's mother and her boyfriend invited several friends over for a cookout at her Lake Ozark home.The boyfriend told investigators he threw a pitcher of water over two still-burning logs before they left for a bar, leaving 14-year-old Tyler Otto to watch his brothers. The fire killed Tyler, along with 8-year-old Cason, 5-year-old Max and 4-year-old Levi.Investigators couldn't conclusively determine a cause but narrowed it down to a discarded cigarette or sparks from the fire pit or grill.Permalink| Comments
