A community in Erie, Pennsylvania is coming together to support a volunteer firefighter who lost his three children in a daycare fire.

Luther Jones’ two daughters and a son died after a blaze broke out in the early morning hours of Aug. 11.

The children were staying at the Harris Family Daycare overnight while their parents were working.

Around 1:00 am, Erie firefighters responded to a call of children who were trapped inside a burning house.

Meanwhile, Jones and his Lawrence Park Volunteer Fire Department crew were en route to another call just blocks away from the blaze.
