Gadsden, AL (WIAT) – Police in Gadsden, Alabama are trying to figure out what caused a house fire that killed three family members.

The fatal fire broke out early Thanksgiving morning.

Police have identified the victims as Arthur, Katherine and Jill Fambrough.

Neighbors say 74-year-old Arthur Fambrough had build several of the homes in their community.

The family had just decorated their home for Christmas… and had been cooking outside ahead of Thanksgiving.
