An investigator for the state fire marshal's office says there appears to be no signs of arson in the Thanksgiving morning fire that killed five in Wheaton:
An investigator for the State Fire Marshal's Office suspects a couch in an upstairs apartment might have been where flames broke out.
The fire at Blue Ridge Apartments was reported about 3:20 a.m. Thursday. Two people died in one unit and three others in a neighboring apartment.
The victims were Molly Doherty, 54, and Jonathan Gemmecke, 32, who were in one apartment; and Mary Henning, 43, her son, Brandon Thurston, 8, and her boyfriend, Corey Hasche, 23, in the other unit.
