Investigator: No signs of arson in fire that killed five in Wheaton

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.
