The fire is believed to have started after Dean Heasmen, the father of 7, allegedly set a pillow on fire and hurled it as his defacto partner. The fire took hold of their family home, which eventually claimed the life of three of his children. Sadly, as the family tried to escape, Heasmen forced the family back inside the burning house. Yesterday, his partner, and mother of their 7 children, returned to the scene to inspect the floral shrine that has built since the tragic event on Sunday. RIP little ones, our hearts go out to this poor mumma and her children.
