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.

Erie News Now reports as many as eight people were trapped in the burning building. Firefighters rescued victims from the inferno, ranging in age from 8 months to 8 years old. The daycare owner, Elaine Harris, and two teenagers escaped the flames.
