Stafford house fire: Cannabis and boiler ruled out as causes of blaze


A house fire which killed four children was not caused by cannabis growth or a boiler exploding, police have said.

Riley Holt, eight, Keegan Unitt, six, Tilly Rose Unitt, four, and Olly Unitt, three, died in the blaze in Highfields in Stafford last Tuesday.

Staffordshire Police said they had ruled out both as possible causes of the fire amid speculation online.

A woman, 24, and a man, 28, arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence, have been bailed.
