WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, Ohio (AP) — Mourners have packed a southwest Ohio church for funeral services for a woman and her three grandsons killed in a house fire the morning after Christmas.

Visitation and the services were held Tuesday morning for 60-year-old Terry Harris, 14-year-old Kenyon, 11-year-old Broderick and 9-year-old Braylon.

Police say the boys wanted to spend Christmas night with their grandmother so she wouldn't be alone. Her single-story, ranch-style house was destroyed last Friday morning. The state fire marshal's office says an investigation into the cause of the fire is continuing.

Services were at Heritage Memorial Church in Washington Court House.

There are several efforts underway to raise memorial contributions and funds to support the family. More events are being planned in the Fayette County community about 40 miles southwest of Columbus.
