Burnett said investigators arent sure if the fire was started by a lightning strike or by down power lines, but did say it was weather related. Burnett said Max Heinen, 67, was able to get all nine children ranging in age from 3 to 16-years-old out of the home. After Heinen sent the kids to a neighbors house to call for help, Burnett said he went back into the home to try and fight the fire.
