Crowley, La (NBc33) —
In Crowley, two children are dead after a massive house fire.
State Fire Marshal Butch Browning says the fire happened on West 8th Street early Sunday morning. When firefighters arrived, the house was engulfed in flames.
Firefighters found the bodies of four year-old Tajay Robinson and two year-old Micah Johnnie. Four people managed to escape.
Investigators say the fire may have started from a discarded cigarette, but they're still investigating. The state fire marshal says there wasn't a working smoke detector in the house.
