A woman arrested for ‘child neglect’ after twins died in a house fire has been released on bail.
The 27-year-old was asked to return to a south London police station in mid-January.
She was taken into custody after flames broke through the terraced house on Collingwood Road, Sutton, south London, shortly before 7pm on Thursday.
Brothers Kyson and Bryson, four, and Leyton and Logan, three, were found at home alone by firefighters and all died in the fire.
They were described by their father, Dalton Hoath, as ‘bright, caring, lovely boys’.
He told MailOnline: ‘Myself and my family are absolutely devastated by this tragic loss.
‘They are bright, caring, lovely boys, but most of all sons, brothers, nephews, great-grandsons, nieces and cousins.
‘We want to thank all of the emergency services that have done so much to try to save our boys, and the whole local community for coming together during this difficult time.
‘I will ask my family for time to grieve privately. They will forever be in my heart and thoughts, daddy. ‘
Neighbors had placed tributes for the children at the scene throughout the day, with cards, flowers and teddy bears left outside the house.
The boy’s grandfather also shared his shock and grief at their deaths.
In a Facebook post, Jason Hoath wrote: ‘It breaks my heart to say that the horrific house fire that broke out in Sutton last night resulted in four children losing (sic) their lives (sic) being children. My wonderfully beautiful and intelligent grandson.
‘(They were) taken away too soon, they will always be in our hearts and thoughts. Son, I love you forever. Grandpa xxx’
Police said their investigation, along with members of the fire service, is continuing.
They were called to the fire department at 7 p.m. Thursday and managed to rescue the children from the building, but they all died shortly after.
Police Chief Dave Stringer, police commander for Croydon, Bromley and Sutton Police, said: ‘The thoughts of everyone at the Metropolitan Police are with the family and friends of the four boys who lost their lives in the incident. this pity.
‘We know it will be a huge shock to the local community and as part of that community we are here to provide any support we can.
‘Local detectives continue to investigate and will work with colleagues from London Fire Brigade to determine the cause of the fire and investigate any other related issues.
‘We will continue to work with local authorities and the wider community to support local people as they come to terms with this tragic loss.’
