BERKELEY, MO (KTVI) – A fund has now been set-up to help a Berkeley family who lost two children in a fire this past week. Their parents remain hospitalized.

Stephen Towns, Junior, 4,  and his 3-year-old brother Isaiah died when fire swept through their Berkeley home early Monday morning.

Their parents, 30-year-old Stephen Towns and his 33 year-old wife, Cheronna, are still in the hospital. They had gotten out of the house with an infant girl by climbing out a bedroom window, but they couldn’t get to the other kids. Firefighters also tried to rescue the little boys, but it was too late.

If you’d like to help, a trust fund has been set up for the family at the Academy Bank located inside Walmart in Kirkwood, MO. The address is 1202 S. Kirkwood Rd., St. Louis, MO  63122  and the branch phone number is 314-965-2400.
