The fire reportedly started in the girl's room in the one-story house and spread to the living room and the boy's bedroom.

The children were alone, Little said. But neighbors told firefighters they saw an unidentified person, probably a baby-sitter, escape from the back door of the house. The fire, reported at 9:36 p.m. Sunday, engulfed the house in flames within minutes, Little said. Although fire officials believe the children were playing with matches, the department's arson unit is investigating the blaze because "they figured it's suspicious because it went up real quick," he said.
