A mother and one of her kids barely escape Tuesday's fire but three other children weren't as lucky.
Those siblings - ranging in age from four to 19 died during the fire that police say was intentionally set.
Police have arrested 18 year old Marcus Jones in connection with the fire.
But what makes this arrest so unusual -- is that Jones lives right across the street, from the house he allegedly helped set on fire.
In the early morning hours Tuesday, Linda Christmas and her son escaped a fire that completely destroyed her home. Christmas says no one would help her, as her three other children died clutching each other in the fire.
