KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Investigators are still looking for the cause of an apartment fire that claimed the lives of three young children.

The fire broke out Monday afternoon at the Interfaith Homes complex on Interfaith Boulevard.

Family members tell us inside were 3-year-old twins, Tevin and Ty'nitha Williams, and their little sister, one-year-old Tyonna Henderson.

Firefighters could not get to them in time.

Relatives tell us they still can't comprehend what happened that would cause three little kids to be lost forever.

“I'm lost for words, I can't say anything right now but I'm going to cry," said the victims' cousin Tamisha Watts. “They were just so beautiful, every time I came to visit, people loved to play with them."

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

A firefighter was injured as he was working on the fire. The ladder he was on collapsed, but he's expected to be okay.

Grace Mercy Luv Ministries is working to gather items for the family since they lost everything.

They say they are looking for items for the surviving child. A Facebook page has been set up to collect the donations.
