A community gathered to lift up and remember the family that lost four children in a fatal fire.

All four children were younger than 9 years old and died in a house fire in Springfield.

On Wednesday night, friends and complete strangers prayed for the family affected by the blaze.

The family's father Julian Pope and an 8-year-old remain at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

A gofundme page has been set up to pay for funeral costs and medical costs for the two survivors.

Also, a vigil will be held at 5:30 p.m. Friday night at Legion Field in Springfield.
