MATADOR, Texas -

State Fire Marshal's say the cause of a deadly mobile home fire in Matador on New Years is undetermined citing the lack of evidence due to the blaze.

The fire killed three people including an infant, the names will not be released until the autopsy is completed.

An inspector with the Fire Marshals said while the cause is undetermined, this should serve as a reminder to be careful when heating your home this winter.

"This winter has been really bad," Kelly Vandygriff. "We've been running on a just a weird amount of fatality fires this year and that's why we'd like to take this opportunity to get that information out there to heat your home safely"

He says do not place space heaters too close to other items in your home, check your smoke detectors regularly, never leave fires unattended, do not use cooking appliances as a heat source and install a carbon monoxide detector to monitor any fumes that could potentially be in your home.
