Three young boys killed in December house fire buried


Three brothers who lost their lives in a tragic house fire were laid to rest Wednesday, nearly a month after their deaths.

A funeral was held for three of Rockell Coleman's sons was held on Dec. 27. The 3, 4 and 10-year-old all died following a fire at the family home in Decatur on Dec. 12. Coleman has been charged in connection to their deaths since the children were home alone. Two other boys survived.

The family was not able to immediately bury the children because they were $4,000 short of the funds needed.

The boys were buried at Dawn Memorial Park in Decatur Wednesday afternoon.

Donations to help defray costs are still being accepted. They can be sent to:"The Coleman Kids"c/o Lincoln Memorial Gardens2275 Joseph E. Boone BlvdAtlanta, GA 30314
