The mother of the 3-year-old girl who died in a fire in Rogers Park Wednesday is now under investigation by the Department of Children and Family Services.

The agency says three other children have been placed with relatives, and they are looking into accusations of neglect against LaSheena weekly.

Weekly tells DNA Info Chicago that the accusations are not true.

She says her daughter, LeAndrea White, may have been playing with a lighter when the fire started.
