Funeral services for the two children killed in Harkness fire are being held on Tuesday.

New York State Police say there is still no cause. They don't expect one to be released this week. 

Multiple fire and rescue departments were called to Clintonville Road after 9 p.m. on July 1. Penny Stone, 23, was taking care of five children at the time, two of them her own and three were her brother's. 

Stone told police she discovered a fire in a bedroom of the mobile home and her attempts to put it out were not successful. She was able to rush her two children out of the home and go next door to get help from family members.

Two of the children weren't able to make it out, Tucker Burnham, 6, and 4-year-old Payden Burnham. Both were found after the fire was extinguished. The third child, Raelynn Burnham, six months, is at a hospital in Boston in critical condition.

Friends have started a fundraising effort to help the family with expenses. To donate visit this site or go to 44 Liberty St. in Keeseville to donate supplies to David Slater.
