Investigation continues into Alma fire that killed child

Posted: Updated:

Police and fire marshals continue to investigate the death of a 4 year old in a house fire in Alma.

Police Chief Brandon Sellers told WTOC the child, Jarquavious Alston, was found in a closet of the home. He said the parents told investigators they were asleep Monday at about noon when one of their children woke them that there was fire in their duplex apartment. He said the couple reported they rushed the child out the door, but could not get back in to find the four year old.

A neighbor who saw the fire rushed over to help and could not enter the house due to the extreme heat.
