A kitchen fire is the possible cause of a fatal weekend fire that killed three in Monroe, Ga., including former Miami Dolphin Quentin Moses.

The Monroe Fire Department said Monday that investigators believe the fire, which began at about 6 a.m., originated in the kitchen. Possible causes include a cooking incident, an electrical problem or an issue with an appliance.

The fire department said there is no indication of arson.

According to the incident report, Moses was unconscious when crews arrived. He was moved outside, where CPR was rendered, but was declared dead on arrival at Clearview Medical Center.

The roof of the building collapsed as the fire was being brought under control.

Moses was a backup defensive lineman and linebacker for the Dolphins from 2007-10. He had been a four-year letterman at George, where he played under current University of Miami coach Mark Richt.

The fire, at 417 Shamrock Dr., also killed Andria Godard, 31, and her 10-year-old daughter, Jasmine Godard.
