It's been more than two months since a fire ripped through a cabin near Tamarack Resort that killed four people, including two adults and two children.

Since then there's been few details on what caused the deadly fire, though answers may be coming soon.

The state's fire marshal told KBOI 2News on Wednesday that his office returned from Tamarack today (Wednesday) for an additional two-day follow up and is finalizing a report.

It's still not publicly known what caused the fire, but fire marshal Knute Sandahl says the state will hold a news conference either next week or the following week to update the community. Earlier this summer, Sandahl said investigators were focusing their investigation on the fireplace.

Four people were killed in the June 30 fire including Erin Smith, 34, her 6-year-old daughter Autumn, and 49-year-old James Harper III and his 14-year-old James (John) Harper.

Smith made history last year when she graduated from the Army's M1 Armor Crewman School. Smith was the first woman in history to graduate and be put on the path to be a member of a four-person tank crew.
