A crowd gathered at the home Tuesday night to remember the three killed in the fire and to show support for the only survivor.

Anja Rosavac, 13, and her parents Steve and Jasmine Rosavac, and Mia, 16, were in the house at the time of the fire.

Police responded to the scene on Nevada Street around 7 a.m. Saturday after several 911 calls were made about the fire.

When police officers arrived, they found the home engulfed in flames. Officers learned Mia escaped the fire. Mia was released from the hospital with minor burns.

Leonard Black never imagined he and his wife would be standing outside his brother and sister-in-law's house grieving.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help pay for the family's expenses and funeral costs. You can donate here.
