Fatal Tifton fire ruled accidental

TIFT CO., GA (WALB) - The State Fire Marshal's office has ruled that the Tifton fire that killed 12-year old twins Jeremiah and Neamiah Walker was an accident.

Glenn Allen, spokesman for fire commissioner Ralph Hudgens, said the damage to the home was too extensive to determine how the fire started but it did begin in the boys' bedroom.

Their mother Tangela Walker and sister Florissa Walker were able to get out of the home last Friday morning on Timmons Drive.

Various fundraising efforts to continue to help the family pay for the funeral for the twins.
