Firefighters had responded to the home Thursday and found it engulfed in flames.

Marisa Munoz was found dead. The other children are Munoz's cousins and were taken to a burn center in Lubbock, Texas, in critical condition.

Initial findings from the state Fire Marshal's Office point to arson.

Sunland Park spokesman Peter Ibaro said Saturday that Munoz's death now is being investigated as a homicide. The city is looking for anyone who might have information on how the fire started.

A medical examiner hasn't determined exactly how Munoz died.
