The Rapid City Fire Department says a late-November apartment building blaze that killed four people was started by a resident but investigators do not believe it was malicious in nature.
Officials have not released the cause of the November 27 fire and say the investigation is continuing.
Killed in the fire were 51-year-old Marcia Rock and three of her grandsons: 9-year-old Thomas Rosado, 5-year-old Dustin Rosado and 3-year-old Marquez Hawk Wing. Officials say they died of smoke inhalation.
