EAST LIVERPOOL While funeral services were held Thursday for all four victims of a house fire early Saturday morning on Vine Street, the investigation into that blaze continues.
No new information was available yesterday about the cause or origin of the fire that killed 37-year-old Ulrick "Rick" Estimot and his sons, Trey, 11, Terrell, 7, and Trenton, 5, with a call to the state fire marshal not returned.
Services were held Thursday morning at Dawson Funeral Home for Terrell, Trenton and their father, with burial following in Riverview Cemetery.
Services for Trey, who has a different mother than his brothers, were held Thursday afternoon at Nixon Funeral Home in Newell, W.Va., with burial plans not disclosed.
A memorial is planned for 7 p.m. today at Patterson Field by the Little Potters Football Team, for whom Trey played.
Meanwhile, county Coroner Dr. William Graham said autopsies on all four are still outstanding and said he doesn't expect results to be available for a month or two.
Graham also said he has not received a final report from the fire marshal.
City police and fire officials are also investigating after the fire marshal declared the blaze to be the result of arson.
Estimot's fiance, Angela Latshaw, called 911 just moments after midnight Saturday to report her home on fire and her fiance and children inside. A passerby kicked in the door and reported hearing the children screaming, but the flames were too intense for him or police officers who arrived on the scene to enter.
Firefighters quickly brought the fire under control, but the victims were found inside, all with burns and levels of carbon monoxide in their systems.
