Investigators seek cause of deadly row house fire

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Fire officials are investigating the cause of a blaze that raced through a block of row homes in Philadelphia, killing three 4-year-olds and a baby. Investigators planned to return to the scene Sunday, a day after the fire engulfed at least 10 homes. Among the dead are 4-year-old twins, Maria and Marialla Bowah. Their father, Pennoh Davis, tells WPVI-TV that they loved Sunday school and music. Four-year-old Patrick Sanyeah and 1-month-old Taj Jacque also died in the blaze. The twins' mother and three of their sisters escaped the fire through a second-floor window and were taken to a hospital. A neighbor, Jeff Boone, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that he saw a couch on fire on a porch and says the flames jumped across the row of houses.
