Four brothers and two pets have died in a Lake of the Ozarks house fire this morning. One of the boys – a fourteen-year-old – was in charge of watching his siblings, who were 8, 5 and 4 years old. A parent was not home when the fire started.
Officials say the cause of the fire may never be determined because the damage was so heavy. They do not believe the fire was intentional.
