Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

HINTON, WV (WVVA) A Saturday morning house fire shook the City of Hinton. Four days later, the city is coming together to to remember the children who lost their lives in that fire. In a crowded Summers Middle School gym, family and friends worked up the courage to tell the audience the memories they have of their friends and students.

Summers County Superintendent Kim Rodes specifically will remember the kids’ love for school and their contagious smiles.

Jason Gore, a bus driver for Summers County Schools, says he’ll miss seeing the boy on the corner and waving every day. He says this tragedy has affected the whole community.

During the vigil, Pastor Mark Bayle of Lifeline Church, called the kids “extraordinary people who live ordinary lives”.

Funeral arrangements for the children have not yet been made.
