BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A memorial viewing is scheduled for Sunday for the six Malone children who lost their lives in a northeast Baltimore fire earlier this month.
According to the Love for the Malones Facebook page, the public is welcomed at the Hubbard funeral home in Catonsville on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the Malone family requests donations be made to BARCS (in honor of 10-year-old Amelia) and the National Endowment for the Arts (in honor of 11-year-old Bridgette).
Mom Katie Malone was recently released from the hospital. Her three surviving children have all been released from the hospital as well.
Fire officials identified the children who died as a result of the fire as Bridgette Anna Malone, 11; Amelia Susan Malone, 10; Amanda Claire Malone, 3; Zoe Juliet Malone, 3; William Francis Malone IV, 2; and Daniel George Malone, 8 months and 30 days.
Since that house fire on Springwood Avenue on January 12, there has been an outpouring of support with fundraisers and donations. To make a donation to the family’s GoFundMe page CLICK HERE.
