Update: Boy dies in rural fire

There's still no cause on the house fire that killed 9-year-old Anton Fomin last Thursday night. 

The Lancaster County Attorney says results from an autopsy won't be released for at least 30 days.

Anton Fomin was killed in the fire near Davey. The State Fire Marshal's office says they're still the cause of the fire but neighbors say they heard a loud explosion.

Investigators won't say much other than the explosion possibly came from a propane tank.

“At this time the information we have is very limited and the investigation is on-going. We know there was a family member inside the home at the time of the fire. Pending autopsy results, we'll have further information at a later time,” said LSO, Chad Bryant.

Fomin, who was born in Russia, is survived by his brother, foster parents, and his biological mother.  He is preceded in death by his biological father, Vyacheslav Fomin.

Service times are pending at the House of Prayer Church in Lincoln.
