Kevin Margraf, Assistant Fire Chief for the Hammond Fire Department says a fund has been established at First Midwest Bank for the family devastated by the fire. 
 
While the manner of death is still pending, the Lake County Coroner's office listed the cause of death as burns to the body that took the lives of 7 month-old Jayden young, 4 year-old Dasani Young and 3 year-old Alexia Young. 
 
Hammond Chief Fire Inspector says that the father of the three children, 27 year-old Andre Young, who reportedly suffered third-degree burns, will survive and the two children who were also hospitalized are expected to make a full recovery. 
 
Donations for the Young family can be made at any branch of First Midwest Bank, according to the article:  http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/lake/hammond/official-inspection-might-have-prevented-tragic-hammond-fire/article_e4860fd8-1173-5a36-a6ac-0493e17d2002.html
