WARWICK, Mass. (WWLP) – Family and friends paid their respects Friday night to the mother and four children killed in a house fire in Warwick last weekend.
Calling hours were held Friday night for Lucinda Seago and her children, Nicholas, Martin, Demetria, and Peter, at the Kostanski Funeral Home in Turners Falls. The children ranged in age from seven to fifteen.
They were killed last weekend when their home on Richmond street caught fire. It was an accident started by the family’s wood stove. The father and one of the five children made it out alive.
“One child gets out along with the father. I’m sure there’s some injuries there. What they’re going to have to go through in the future I can’t even imagine,” said Corey Boyd of Turners Falls.
A funeral mass will be held Saturday morning at 10 at Our Lady of Czestochowa Church in Turners Falls, where two of the boys were altar servers. A burial will follow at the parish cemetery.
Friends and community members have already raised more than $64,000 through a crowdfunding website for the father and daughter who survived the fire.
