It seems a candle started a fire at 2206 Clover Avenue in Rockford just before 4:00 a.m. Monday. The two parents, Joe and Delores Herron, escaped. But when firefighters arrived, their daughter and foster kids were still inside a bedroom. Rescuers got the 2 boys out. It was too late for the teenage girl.
