Cause Announced For Fatal Fire

State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey is announcing the cause of a deadly fire in Springfield last month. 

Ostroskey said during a press conference at the Springfield  Fire Department on Wednesday that the fire at an apartment on Belmont  Avenue was caused by a child playing with matches. 

A father and his two  young children were killed in the blaze. 

Ostroskey says children using  matches and lighters is a common problem nationally and says parents  need to take the matter seriously.
