    Information can’t be released as there may be an investigation into what the cause was.

  6. The cause of the fire had not been determined as of 10:30 this morning. Jake is in a Phoenix hospital on a ventilator due to smoke inhalation and being treated for burns. His burns came from trying to escape the fire, which he did and then walked to his parents house across the street and 911 was called.
