CEDAR HILL, Texas (AP) - Investigators say a fourth family member has died following a suspicious fire several weeks ago that destroyed the home of a Dallas-area minister.

Police in Cedar Hill say 17-year-old Darryn Keahey died Monday. She was critically injured in the Feb. 28 blaze . The bodies of her parents, Eugene Keahey and Deanna Wilson-Keahey, plus her sister, 15-year-old Camryn Keahey, were found in the burned home.

Eugene Keahey was pastor at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in the nearby community of Sandbranch.

Investigators have said they believe the fire was intentionally set and no intruder was involved. Cedar Hill police Lt. Colin Chenault says the state fire marshal's office is reviewing evidence. The Dallas County medical examiner's office said Tuesday that autopsy results were pending.
