Mother’s Day was ruined in Pottsville, Pennsylvania when a house fire killed six people including four children. The deceased have been identified as Eric Brown (30), Kristina Thomas (26), Joy Brown (8), Jeremiah Brown (7), Emily Brown (3) and Elijah Brown (2). Kelly Brown, the mother of the children and Eric’s wife, was at a neighbor’s home when the fire broke out. Kristina is Kelly’s sister.
Tragically, all six bodies were found on the third floor of the home — which likely means they had no chance of escaping the flames. The fire began shortly before midnight and quickly engulfed the house. No cause of the fire has been established yet.
