Autopsy: Smoke inhalation killed 6 fire victims…

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Six members of an Indianapolis family killed in a weekend fire died of smoke inhalation, but investigators say they can't determine the cause of the blaze.
 
Fire Capt. Rita Reith said Wednesday that investigators have been unable to find the ignition source for Saturday's blaze that killed 47-year-old Lionel “Leo'' Guerra, his 33-year-old wife, Brandy Mae Guerra, and their four children. The fire is believed to have been accidental.
 
Reith says preliminary autopsy reports indicate all six family members died of smoke inhalation. Lionel and Brandy Mae Guerra and two of their children died Saturday. Fourteen-year-old Miranda and 6-year-old Fuentes Guerra died Sunday at Riley Hospital for Children.
 
Reith says family members donated organs of three of the victims.
 
Funeral services are expected to be held next week.
