Cause of Deadly Blaze Under Investigation

MARINA, Calif. -- As hundreds bowed their heads for five developmentally disabled adults killed in a fire at their home-care facility, Marina Mayor Bruce Delgado addressed the mourners with a mix of sadness and second-guessing.

“So many of us… are wondering what we might be able to do in the future to make sure nothing like this happens again,” he said at the Nov. 10 service.

The cause of the Nov. 5 fire at Mt. Carmel Residential Care Facility remains unknown, according to officials with the Marina Police Department and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, who have teamed up with the county in the investigation. ATF spokesman John Lee says his department doesn’t expect new information to come to light for several weeks.
