New information was released Tuesday afternoon about a deadly fire that killed four children.

The State Fire Marshal's office says it's investigation into the Mt. Sterling fire is now complete. They have ruled the Christmas Eve fire accidental.

The fire marshal says while the fire started in a chair in the living room, they don't know how it started.

Brothers Brandon, Wayne and Timothy Elam died in the fire, along with their cousin Shirley Rothwell.

The family says they didn't get the closure they needed, however.
