My niece (2) was staying over that night with two friends. They asked if I could get them some drink. I was not keen on the idea, but I agreed to get them two small bottles of WKD to share. Everybody was having a good time, just group of girls having girly chats. One of them said that she did not think that boys found her attractive so we all kept reassuring her and I made a silly comment that 'I would be'. I just meant to give her some confidence but my wife got upset about it and left the house to calm down. My niece (2) went after her. Before going to bed I texted my wife saying 'please just come back, I love you'.

How many versions of this were there?

Are any of the fire investigators' reports available?

I doubt whether there are any online now, if they ever were, after such a long time.  Certainly none on the forum.

An interview with Billy Middleton, if you haven't seen it before here...

John Lentini is one of the top fire investigators in the United States.  Here is a good article on potential errors in investigations:

A great deal stands or falls on the question of whether there were multiple origins.  If a fire reaches flashover and continues to burn, determining the origin of the fire is much more difficult.

The Lime Street Fire in Florida, USA is a comparable case in at least one respect, that one of the children survived.  The experiments that grew out of this case are important in the history of fire investigation.  This is a thorough article.
