Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño said a preliminary investigation indicates a fuse in the breaker box sparked the fire, which spread throughout the home on Bentsen Palm Drive north or Mile 3 Road. This far into the investigation, the sheriff said he sees no criminal culpability.
At the time of the fire, he said eight or nine family members were in the home. All but the girl made it out alive.
