Memorial Service For 4 Children Killed In Elmira Fire

09.02.13 | Sarah Harnisch

Elmira, New York continues to mourn the deaths of 4 children in a house fire.  More than a hundred people gathered for a candlelight vigil over the weekend for the victims of Friday night's deadly house fire on Morrow street. Those who came left stuffed animals, balloons, and lit candles in memory of the four children who lost their lives.  The blaze swept through the two-story home and fire officials say it was fully engulfed when they arrived. The victims were found on the second floor.  17 year old Courtney Stanton was killed in the fire, along with her siblings, 10 year old Amera Monsour, 8 year old NJ Monsour, and 6 year old Jordan Monsour.

Ways to help: Buffalo Wild Wings In Horseheads. Starting September 16th, the restaurant will hold a week-long event where people can drop off donations for the family, and will donate 20-percent of the restaurant's profits to the family.

Also: "It's A Girl Thing" (a clothing store) on College Avenue in Elmira Heights. Tuesday through Saturday, you can drop off gift cards or checks made payable to 'Tina Parker'. The family is holding off on material donations for now, while they work out a place for Tina and her one surviving daughter to live.
