HAMMOND | Funeral services were held Monday for the three children who died in a house fire Jan. 8 in Hammond.

Dasani Young, 4, Alexia Young, 3, and Jayden Young, 7 months, were laid to rest Monday following a private service at Burns Kish Funeral Home on Homan Avenue.

The children were unable to escape the fire, which investigators believe was caused by a propane heater.

Their father, Andre Young, 27, suffered third-degree burns and is still in critical condition at John R. Stroger Hospital. Two siblings, Isaiah Sammon, 6, and Evian Young, 2, were treated and released.
