Christmas tree fire sparked blaze at Philadelphia house that killed 12 including eight children

The Independent says The deadly Philadelphia house fire that killed 12 people including eight children last week is believed to have started when a five-year-old boy set a Christmas tree on fire, according to investigators.

Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Adam Thiel said in a press conference on Tuesday that investigators have “99 to 100 per cent confidence” that a Christmas tree on the second floor of the row home in Fairmount was the first item to go up in flames on Wednesday morning.

He said investigators believe “with near certainty” that the tree was set alight with a lighter, which was discovered close by in the debris.
