Ty Ty -- Investigators say a stove used as a heater caused a weekend house fire in Ty Ty that killed two children.

3-year-old Antonio Mathis and his sister, 6-year-old Shadasia Johnson, were inside the home on Dorsey Road when it caught fire Saturday afternoon.

Their grandmother, Joanne Ford, was not inside the home when the fire started.

Investigators think one of the children might have put something on the stove which sparked the flames.

The little boy died in the home.

Firefighters rescued the little girl, but she later died from smoke inhalation and burns.

It will be up to the District Attorney to decide whether their grandmother will face any charges.
