LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County Coroner ruled the deaths of 2-year-old Quamaine Richardson Jr. and 2-month-old London Richardson as accidental, caused by inhalation of products of combustion.

The children were identified in April. They were killed in a house fire near Owens Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard in the east valley on March 30.

A GoFundMe page created by the father’s side of the family has collected $6,125 thus far. Information on the page indicates that the father of the children remains in the hospital in critical but stable condition. The mother’s side of the family set up a separate venmo account they have not made public.

Friends and family gathered Wednesday night to remember the boy and the girl who were lost in the Caddington Avenue fire.

Fire officials say the blaze started in a front room of the home and spread to a bedroom where the two children were.

A man who was outside of the home when firefighters arrived on scene was taken into the hospital.

A neighbor across the street said he saw a man break a window and climb out of the home, then attempted to pull the children out of the home but was not able to.
