Killeen Fire

Killeen firefighters are at the scene of a fire in the 3100 block of Jason Cove in Killeen.

The Killeen Fire Marshal's Office is still investigating the fire that caused the death of three young girls on Jan. 26. There are no new developments, according to Fire Marshal James Chism on Tuesday.

The fire started in a home in the 3000 block of Jason Cove about 3:30 a.m. Jan. 26, after a pot was left unattended on the stove. Three adults escaped the house, one of whom had to climb out a window.

Over 400 people packed into the Westside Baptist Church in Killeen Saturday to mourn the deaths of Chasity Armstrong, 6, Ka’Liyah Armstrong, 5, and Tristan-Sarah Blakes, 3.

During the time of the fire, weather conditions made fires more likely to spread and burn quickly. A burn ban has been in place in Bell County since.
