ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) - The father of one of four children killed in a West Virginia house fire says his daughter's donated organs are keeping three transplant patients alive, so she continues to bring joy to other families.
 
Dmitriy Bolgar said during a Monday night vigil in Elkins that 11-year-old Katie Bolgar's liver went to a 1-year-old girl. Her kidneys went to two other people. All are doing well.
 
Bolgar is from northern Virginia.
 
Media outlets say hundreds paid their respects to Katie Bolgar, 29-year-old Alan Chamberlain and his three children, 4-year-old Isabella Chamberlain and 2-year-old twins Brianna and Alanna Chamberlain. They died in the Oct. 28 fire in Elkins.
 
The children's mother and uncle - 34-year-old Jennifer Chamberlain and her brother, Jeff Hyde - remain at the West Penn Burn Center in Pittsburgh.
