Fire Investigators Look For Cause

Investigators interview survivors in attempt to find fire's cause

State fire investigators trying to determine the cause of a weekend fire that killed three Miami University students plan to interview survivors of that blaze today.

The students died early Sunday morning when fire spread through their off-campus house in Oxford. Butler County Coroner Richard Burkhardt has identified victims as 21-year old Julia Turnbull of Milford, 21-year-old Kathryn Welling of Bronxville, New York and 22-year-old Stephen Smith of Bethesda, Maryland.

Seven other people were able to escape. One had to jump from a second-story window.

A steady stream of students has been walking past the house. Some have left flowers or notes, while others cry or console one another.
