When firefighters arrived, they found fire shooting out of the front door and window of the home. They say the home was completely engulfed.



"While I may always feel like their time on earth was cut short, I am comforted by the fact that each of you were absolutely perfect in every way," the children's mother, Jackie, said through tears at the vigil. "May you rest peace in heaven... love, love my darling babies."

Two GoFundMe pages have been set up in honor of the children, with the funds going toward several causes, including fire education and a scholarship at Saint Laurence Catholic School, where the siblings went to school.
