Assistant Fire Chief Rick Flanagan says firefighters opened the roof to let smoke escape.
"We opened up the fire to vent it from the ceiling but they went inside and controlled it, but it didn't do a tremendous amount of damage to the house. But the biggest thing that we're looking at right now is that there's a significant impact to the community, a significant impact to the firefighters that work in environments like this, so it's just a process now of moving forward and putting the pieces together from the investigative standpoint."
Firefighters and investigators were questioning the woman running the daycare. It's been a process to notify all the parents of those kids who were at the daycare, as well as notify next-of-kin.
