Candles blamed for Lorton fire deaths
Fairfax County authorities say unattended candles are to blame for a blaze that killed a woman and her two children in a Lorton home.
The county fire and rescue department said Tuesday the Sept. 22 fire was accidental. Twenty-four-year-old Elieen Cecilia Langham-Anderson, and her two sons, 5-year-old Soloman Anderson and 3-year-old Alfonso Anderson, died in the townhouse from smoke inhalation and thermal burns.
Three other children and an adult also were rescued from the home. In addition, four firefighters suffered minor injuries.
County officials say there have been 10 fire fatalities this year.
