FLORA, Ind. -- The Indianapolis Fire Department will conduct a review of the investigation into a fatal 2016 fire in Flora, Indiana.

IFD is conducting the review on the request of the Indiana State Police. 

The fire happened the morning of Nov. 21, 2016. It killed four sisters -- Keyana, 11, Keyara, 8, Kerrielle, 7, and Kionne, 5. About two months later, investigators ruled the fire as arson, saying accelerants were found in a room of the house. No arrests have been made.

ISP does not often investigate arson, so it asked IFD to look at the fire with a fresh set of eyes. The request was made early last month.

The peer review does not mean anything was done incorrectly by ISP.
