DANFORTH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- State Fire Marshal Investigators continue to look into the cause of an early morning fire that destroyed a mobile home on Weatherbee Street in Danforth this morning. Unrelated to the fire, State Police continue to investigate the death of a 5 month old baby boy, whose family lived at the home.

An autopsy on the body of Mach-Danyel Richardson will take place Saturday at the State Medical Examiner's Office in Augusta. The boy died at a Danforth medical facility where he was brought by his parents earlier today.

The fire broke out after the family had left the mobile home. The parents are Alan Richardson and Tabitha Osnoe. 

A four year old son of the couple also lived at the home.

State Police investigate all children's deaths under the age of three. Fire investigators are likely to be some time determining the cause of the fire because of the extensive damage.
