ROCKINGHAM, N.C. — Investigators in Rockingham County spent Thursday night trying to figure out what caused a house fire that killed a 9-year-old girl.

A man in the home woke up to the smell of smoke and tried to get everyone out of the house.

The man managed to rescue the girl's mother and two sisters. But the 9-year-old was trapped.

Neighbors said Thursday that they didn't know how the family will cope after losing a child.
