    A North Texas liquor store has agreed to surrender its license after being accused of selling vodka to a teen who later died with five friends in a fire.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission on Monday said USA Liquor in Fort Worth will give up its alcohol permit March 4.

    Investigators say alcohol consumption may have been a factor in preventing the victims from escaping the March 6, 2011, fire at a Granbury home during a birthday party.
