“She kind of wigged out, like any mother would,” said Dieball. “And, as far as Randy, I’m not really sure. I guess he’s already been sent home out of the hospital. And I don’t really know how he’s dealing with it.”
“They were sweet,” said Dieball. “They loved to fight and play around. You know, typical boys.”
An investigation is underway. The cause of the fire has not been determined.
