   EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities are trying to figure out what caused a fire in an East St. Louis apartment where a 6-year-old boy was found dead and his 4-year-old brother sustained smoke inhalation.
   Officials say Kenyartte Griffin Jr.'s body was found Tuesday night in an upstairs bedroom. The St. Clair County coroner says the boy was in the process of vomiting when he ingested it, causing his death.
   The younger brother was taken to a hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.
   Funeral arrangements are pending.
