State fire investigators have ruled out arson as the cause of a deadly fire in Assumption Parish in August.

However, Fire Marshal H. "Butch" Browning Jr. said investigators were still not able to determine the cause of the blaze that took the lives of a Belle River couple and their two grandchildren from Port Allen.

Browning said the home was burned so badly that investigators could not rule out possible sources of the accidental fire.

The grandchildren were staying overnight at the residence at the time of the fire.
