SUPERIOR, Colo. (AP) - The parents of young children suspected of starting a fire that nearly destroyed a duplex in Superior could face criminal charges.

One family was home when the fire broke out Sunday and escaped. Another returned from a camping trip to find their home burned. Their two dogs also died.

District Attorney Stan Garnett told the Daily Camera (https://bit.ly/1sUvoAf ) that some low-level arson charges may be appropriate in the case.

Chris Rizer and Kristen Rizer-Lohneiss, who lost their dogs in the fire, also say their cat is gone, probably for good. They’re living in their pop-up camper next to the house and say they’re grateful for all the meals and clothing people have offered them. Their daughter’s school also donated a backpack with school supplies.
