The family of two-year-old Dalvin Pacley, one of five children who died in an Erie daycare fire, has retained a law firm to explore legal action following the tragedy.

National law firm Saltz, Mongeluzzi, Barrett & Bendesky, P.C., (SMBB) is leading the legal representation. Erie attorney John B. Carlson is serving as co-counsel.

Dalvin’s mother Karina Facchiano said she believes that she must do all she can in her son's memory to “make sure every question about why and how the fire was caused – and who should be held responsible – must be answered to make sure no other lives are lost in day care centers, in Erie or anywhere,” according to a news release.

Dalvin would have celebrated his third birthday Oct. 12.

The investigation into the fatal Harris Family Daycare fire on Aug. 11 revealed the building only had one smoke detector in the attic.

The Department of Human Services, which is responsible for inspecting child care centers, under law cannott cite a facility for a lack of smoke detectors.
