Fire investigators trying to determine cause of fatal blaze

Fire officials are still trying to figure out what caused a fatal blaze that claimed the life of an 11-year-old girl.  The State Chief Medical Examiner has identified the victim as 11-year-old Andromeda Brown.  The fire broke out in the girl’s Magnolia home on Juanita Drive on Wednesday night.  The girl’s death has been officially ruled an accident, but the Delaware State Fire Marshal’s office is still investigating the origin of the fire.
