chrisa@spokesman.com Snow-covered toys, candy and a lighted candle sit on steps leading to the Old Curlew School Apartments in Curlew, Wash., on Tuesday. A fire destroyed the building and killed three people just before Christmas.

Smoke and steam rise from the rubble at the Old Curlew School a week after the fire. Officials said the cause of the fire was accidental.
