A candlelight vigil lit up the front of Brookland Casey High School Thursday evening in memory of the four members of the Kelly family who died in a house fire.
Scott Kelly, 42, Amanda Kelly, 34, Elizabeth Kelly, 9, and Judah Kelly, 10 months were all victims of the fire.
Three family members survived the fire, including the two oldest children, Bekah and Jared, and their grandmother. The grandmother was airlifted to the Augusta Burn Center for treatment, but she has released.
The cause of the fire is still undetermined, but authorities say it was not intentionally set.
Lexington Country coroner Margaret Fisher says that the family died from carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of the fire.
The funeral is scheduled for Monday, March 27 at 1:00 PM at Trinity Baptist Church in Cayce. The church has started a fund to help the remaining family in this difficult time. Anyone wishing to contribute can donate online or write a check to Trinity Baptist Church with the note Kelly Fund.
