Cause of Fatal East Wheeling Fire Remains Undetermined


New information has been released from the Wheeling Fire Department in connection to the fire on McColloch Street that took the lives of a mother and her two sons.

A month ago the fire on McCulloch Street took the lives of Tracy, Javon and Jadien Daugherty, and after investigating the Wheeling Fire Chief Larry Helms says the official cause is still undetermined.

Investigators did find the origin of the fire and there were some electrical items in the area, but there wasn’t enough evidence to say electric caused the fire.

There was nothing suspicious found either.

Helms says a fire is called undetermined when they cannot 100 percent confirm with evidence how it started.
