DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — A fatal house fire that claimed the lives of a mother and two children is under investigation.
The fire broke out at a mobile home in the Wallburg area early Tuesday morning.
The Davidson County Fire Marshal says the cause of the fire is undetermined, but believes the fire started in the kitchen.
Officials have not been able to rule out electrical issues. They say wires may have overheated due to multiple space heaters being plugged in.
Family members say the mother who died is Kelly Stacy. Her children, 8-year-old Kaylee Stacy and 3-year-old Zachary Stacy, also died in the fire.
Officials say the mother and one of the children were found in the bedroom, while another child was found in the hallway.
The children’s father, Ken Stacy, was outside the home when firefighters arrived at the scene. He was treated and released from the hospital.
The investigation is ongoing.
