Funeral for Four of Victims Killed in Sunday’s Daycare Fire Moved to Bayfront Convention Center
The funeral arrangements for four of the five children who died in the overnight daycare fire early Sunday morning were originally scheduled to take place at the Second Baptist Church, but due to the overwhelming support and expected attendance, the viewing and funeral services will now be held at the Bayfront Convention Center.
Shavona Overton's children La’Myhia Jones, 8; Luther Jones Jr., 6; Ava Jones, 4; and Jaydan Augustyniak, 9 months, died following a fire at their overnight daycare center on West 11th Street in Erie on Sunday.
The fire appears to be electrical in nature, and there was only one working smoke detector, which was located in the attic of the home.
The public viewing will be held Saturday at the Bayfront Convention Center from 10 a.m. until noon. The funeral services will immediately follow.
