By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 02/27/2013 08:00 AM

     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say a fire that killed four people in a Rapid City housing complex was caused by children.
 
     The November blaze at the five-apartment home killed 51-year-old Marcia Rock and her grandchildren, 9-year-old Thomas Rosado, 5-year-old Dustin Rosado and 3-year-old Marquez Hawk Wing.
 
     Fire Department officials say the four victims were overwhelmed by smoke and heat before they could escape.
 
     Mike Maltaverne, the Rapid City fire chief, calls it a tragic event. He says one of the worst problems in the community is children playing with fire, matches and fireworks.
