A 19-year-old man has been rearrested by police investigating the deaths of four siblings in a fire in Lancashire.
Reece Smith, 19, four-year-old twins Holly and Ella and two-year-old Jordan died in the blaze at their home in Lytham Road, Freckleton, on 7 January.
A police spokeswoman said the man, who was due to answer police bail next week, had been rearrested.
The fire, which police believe was deliberate, was started by a naked flame inside a wardrobe.
The children died from smoke inhalation as a result of the fire, which started in the converted bungalow at 23:20 GMT.
Since the incident, police have spoken to hundreds of members of the local community.
The case was the subject of an appeal on BBC One's Crimewatch in September.
