"I hear this loud, what sounded like an explosion and I see children just running out of the house screaming bloody murder. So I get out of my car and walk over to the house and the front door is open and it's just engulfed in flames," said Heather Archibald, witness.

A four-year-old girl was burned in the fire. Police say the stabbing victims are a 16-year-old girl and a 43-year-old woman. Both are expected to be okay.

The stabbing and fire led to an all-out search for Holland. Neighbors were asked to stay in their homes. A K-9 team found Holland in a wooded creek area.

When officers tried to take him into custody, he was shot and later died at the hospital. No officers were injured.
