Four killed in fire at Blake’s house

Tampa: A fire at a Florida mansion belonging to former US tennis star James Blake was intentionally set and four bodies were found in the charred remains, police said.

The victims were described as two adults and two teenagers, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Col. Donna Lusczynski said. She described the fire as unusual and said there were ‘various fireworks’ throughout the Tampa Bay-area home.

Two of the victims appeared to have suffered from upper-body trauma, but Lusczynski didn’t indicate which ones or give any more details. She also said no weapons had been found and that murder-suicide was a possibility.

Blake had rented the home to a family for about the past two years, and was not there at the time of the fire, Lusczynski said.

She identified the renters as the Campbell family; voter registration records identified them as Darrin Campbell and his wife, Kimberly.
