The Houston Fire Department says the owner of the daycare where last week's heartbreaking fire killed four kids has escaped the country.
Jessica Tata, 22, is in Nigeria, HFD tells the Houston Chronicle.
Tata has been charged with reckless injury to a child involving serious bodily injury, but more charges can be added.
Investigators say Tata left the daycare while there was a pot containing oil being heated on an electric stove which, really, is the height of either stupidity or neglect.
