Funeral for 3 young Racine fire victims


RACINE (WKOW) -- Family and friends said their final goodbyes Friday to the three children who died in a house fire in Racine.

Hundreds of people paid their respects to Dayja, Dalijah and Michael Scott.

The children's art teacher said the kids left a void that's hard to fill.

"There were so many kids that were hurt by this by not having their friends there anymore. It was an unbelievable thing, that very first day for us to all be there and it was just like a surreal day for all of us," said teacher Susan Seitz.

The funeral recessional included a drive through the neighborhood where the Scotts lived and played.

Their 5 year old brother, Luther Patterson, survived the fire.

He's still recovering in the hospital.
