ERIE, Pa. (AP) - Residents of a Pennsylvania city gathered to mourn and remember four of the five children who died when fire swept through a home child care center.
A funeral service was held Saturday in Erie for 8-year-old La'Myhia Jones, 6-year-old Luther Jones Jr., 4-year-old Ava Jones and 9-month-old Jaydan Augustyniak. All are siblings. The funeral for 2-year-old Dalvin Pacley will be held Monday.
Three of the victims were the children of a volunteer firefighter, Luther Jones. Their mother, Shevona Overton, is also the mother of Jaydan. An adult and two adolescent boys were able to escape. Fire officials suspect Sunday's blaze was accidental.
Mayor Joe Schember told those attending that some things that happen in life take years to understand -- but other things happen "that we will never understand."
