Utica, NY (WIBX) - Fire investigators in Utica continue to review testimonial and physical evidence from the deadly blaze on Schuyler Street last week that killed a mother and three children, according to Chief Fire Marshal Raymond Beck.
In a press release issued Monday, Beck said there is no specific timeframe for the completion of the investigation. Electical components from inside the home have been submitted for forensic testing, he said.
