(KSL News) Toxicology test results have been released for three children who died in a house fire set by their mother.

The members of the Al-Shimmary family died in October in the home in Kearns.

The Deseret Morning News reports that toxicology tests show the children had two prescription drugs that can be used as sedatives in their bodies. Investigators say the drugs could be the reason the kids could not leave the room as it was burning.
