Affidavit in deadly fire at Houston child care centerjessica tata
Charging documents for Jessica Tata, owner of Jackie's Child Care, state that the cause of the fire that killed four children in west Houston last week was a pot with oil left on a stove burner.
Witnesses state they saw Tata drive up to the residence and "within seconds" they heard her screaming and saw smoke coming from inside the building. They state she was the only adult or employee of the daycare either inside the building or running out of the building at the time.
Tata has been charged with reckless injury to a child involving serious bodily injury.
