KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WZZM) -- A community prayer service is planned tonight for three children killed in a Kalamazoo apartment fire.
3 year old twins, Tevin and Tynitha Williams, and 1 year old Tyonna Henderson died Monday afternoon when flames engulfed their apartment at Interfaith Apartments in Kalamazoo.
Neighbors say they could hear the children crying inside the burning town home, but the flames prevented anyone from getting inside for a rescue.
Although their mother was nearby, investigators say the children were home alone and, by the time anyone noticed the fire, it was too late.
Today's prayer service is scheduled for 5p.m. at the Interfaith Apartment's community center.
