(Baltimore, MD) -- A neighborhood in Southeast Baltimore is mourning the deaths of three people who were killed in a rowhouse fire this week.

The fire broke out overnight Monday on Lombard Street in Highlandtown.

An eight-year-old boy died on the morning of the fire and a 22-year-old man died on Wednesday.

A third victim, a 13-year-old girl, passed away yesterday. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Investigators say they don't know yet if there was a smoke alarm installed.

The Breath of God Lutheran Church is raising money for the survivors and Saint Patrick of Fells Point is helping with clothing and with the funerals.

A collection will also be held during services this weekend.
