DETROIT (AP) - A relative says the couple who died with their two children in a burning Florida home met in Lansing when they both worked as state legislative aides.

Gordon Lambie says his daughter and son-in-law, Kimberly and Darrin Campbell, were successful and close with their teenage children. Authorities say they think the Wednesday fire at the five-bedroom Tampa home was intentionally set.

Lambie says Kimberly Campbell graduated from Central Michigan University and her husband had an MBA from the University of Michigan. They moved to the Tampa area in 2001, but sold their house and had been renting the one they were found in from former tennis star James Blake.

Nineteen-year-old Colin Campbell was a baseball player about to graduate from high school, and his sister, 15-year-old Megan, took dance lessons.
