KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) - A community came together Saturday to say goodbye to the three children killed in a Kalamazoo apartment fire.
Friends and family filled Mount Zion Baptist Church in Kalamazoo to remember 3-year-old twins Tevin and Teniyah Williams and their 1-year-old sister, Tyonna Henderson. The children died Feb. 18 at a fire at Interfaith Apartments.
"It's a blessing that people would come out and support our family," an aunt of the three children said. "Sometimes you don't think that you have any type of support but then you look around and the whole church is filled up -- standing room only. And we are so grateful. We are so very grateful."
Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety officers were in attendance and some served as pallbearers.
Authorities say the children were alone when the fire broke out. The investigation into that fire continues.
The rink will be open that day from 3-9 p.m.
