An eleven-year girl badly injured in a Northshore fire this week has died. The Louisiana fire marshal's office says her brother remains in critical but stable condition. The children's grandfather was treated and released after the fire Tuesday at the home on Pat O'Brien road near Covington.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but the fire marshal's office said investigators are looking into "potential electrical factors."

Working smoke alarms were present in the home.
