Wesley Lance Harvey, 28, was charged with a warrant for abandoning or endangering a child on Thursday afternoon in relation to the fire, the Lubbock County Sheriff said in a release Thursday. Harvey was already booked on unrelated misdemeanor charges earlier that morning.
Harvey is the father to three of the four children and lives at the residence, according to the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office is investigating the cause of the fire with the State Fire Marshal’s Office and could add criminal charges.
