According to the details; four children aged between 2 to 8 were alone in the mobile home in the town of Rayne - about 70 miles west of Baton Rouge in southern Louisiana – when the mobile home caught fire just before midnight on Saturday.
Police sources revealed that the mobile home was completely swallowed up by flames when firefighters rushed at the spot. All four kids were found inside the burnt remains of the white mobile home after the fire was doused off.
The 26-year-old mother Shaqueta McDade was not at home, police told further; but it is still unclear that where she was at the time of tragic incident.
Captain Doug Cain, a spokesperson for Louisiana Department of Public Safety, told media that Rayne police officials investigated McDade after the fire and consequently detained her because "she is suspected of leaving the children unattended." She was being held at the Acadia County Jail.
