WHAT: Surveillance video released Tuesday showed Jessica Tata, 22, shopping at a nearby Target store when a fire killed four children she was supposed to be watching alone at a Houston home day care center she ran.
HOW IT HAPPENED: Neighbors said Tata told them the fire started on a stovetop burner while she was in the bathroom. She was also seen driving up to the home and screaming as smoke poured out the front door.
WHAT’S BEING DONE: Tata apparently fled to her native Nigeria after being accused of abandoning the children in her care. Authorities are trying to locate her for extradition to face trial.
