Benefit scheduled for mother who lost three kids in fire

HOUSTON

A barbecue is being held for Dana Novak's family at noon Saturday at the Johnnie Arolfo Civic Center, 400 W. Walker St., in League City.

Novak and her children were trapped in a fire that broke out in the wee hours of November 11 at the Skylar Point Apartments. Three of her children, 12-year-old Kaitlyn, eight-year-old Christian and five-year-old Nathaniel, died as a result of their injuries.

Webster Fire Department officials say a preliminary investigation suggests the fire started in the common attic above the children's room.
