Fatal fire ruled accidental

September 27, 2005

Brooks County - A fire that killed two South Georgia children is ruled accidental.

Five-year-old Hunter Wolfe and his sister, two-year-old Destinee, died when their Brooks County Home caught fire last Wednesday morning. Their mother tried to get them out but the fire was too hot.

Investigators say the fire started in the living room from a burning candle.  They think Hunter woke up around 1:30, lit the candle and knocked it over.

No smoke detectors were in the home.
