CONYERS, Ga. -- Rockdale County firefighters will distribute smoke detectors Thursday in the neighborhood where four children lost their lives in a fire last week.

The victims ranged in age from 8 months to 9 years. Their funeral is Saturday.

Investigators say the fire sparked when their 6-year-old brother was playing with a lighter.

There were no working smoke detectors in the family's duplex.

Mike Morris from the Rockdale County Fire Department says fire officials will hand out smoke detectors and help residents install them to prevent another tragedy.
