(CBS News) CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Relatives attended church a day after six children and two adults were killed in a house fire in West Virginia.
Talma Isabell lost her 26-year-old daughter, Alisha Carter-Camp, and four grandchildren in the fire early Saturday in Charleston. During services Sunday at Maranatha Fellowship Church in St. Albans, parishioners gathered around Isabell and her family in support at the front of the church.
Pastor Darren Powell asked for donations to help with funeral costs.
Jason Bausley says Carter-Camp was his niece and that she rented the home.
A birthday party was held for Carter-Camp at the home Friday.
Neighbors say Carter-Camp's sister, Latasha Jones Isabell, also lived at the home. Isabell was smoking a cigarette outside, noticed the fire and raced to another home to summon help.
The cause remains under investigation.
