A candlelight service was held Monday night in memory of five family members killed in a house fire one week ago.
Friends and family gathered at the Elkins depot to remember 29-year old Alan Chamberlain, his 2-year-old twin daughters, an 11-year-old half-sister and a 4-year-old all died.
The children's mother and another man remain hospitalized at the West Penn Burn Center in Pittsburgh.
In his Friday column, West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said a cigarette is believed to be the cause of the deadly blaze. Tomblin also said investigators did not find working smoke detectors inside the home.
