Services held for Caden West

Sulphur Springs – Services were held Saturday for a 3 year old boy killed earlier this month in a Sulphur Springs house fire. Donations have been pouring in to help the family of Caden West to rebuild after the fire took their home and everything in it.

Investigators believe the cause of the fire was an accident involving a space heater. They believe Caden and his twin brother Connor woke early the morning of the fire and were playing around an electric heater in the living room. When Beth West woke that morning, the living room was already ablaze.

The boy's parents were able to save their other children, but the fire was too intense to reach Caden.
