Grieving Mother of Children Killed in Daycare Fire Provides Response, Shares Photos
KITV4's sister station Erie News Now in Erie, Pennsylvania has been covering the fire that happened at a daycare and killed five children.
On Sunday, a fire ripped through the Harris Family Daycare on West 11th Street, killing five children. Shevona Overton is the mother of four of the children who were killed.
“I’m just so hurt my babies are gone,” Overton told Erie News Now. “I love them dearly. I just hurt inside knowing that my kids were fighting and hurting in that fire. Every minute, I feel the same pain.”
Overton provided shared photos of her family, and says their names are La’Myhia Jones, 8; Luther Jones Jr., 6; Ava Jones, 4; and Jaydan Augustyniak, 9 months.
Investigators believe an electrical problem may have sparked the fire.
They will be back on the scene at 1248 West 11th Street Monday to determine an exact cause.
