Our community rallying together, just days after Tulsa Police found the bodies of two men and a young girl in a house fire.

Police believe someone intentionally burned down the home.

The vigil was held at the home where an early Sunday morning fire happened.

While police search for a suspect, the home which was a place of tragedy, is now a place to remember the victims.

And families are looking for answers

"I forgive his spirit, but what he did I can't forgive that," Lemuel Taylor, the grandfather said. "God is a forgiving God and he's got to live with that and I pray there be somewhere in his spirit, especially for his family. I pray for his family."

Taylor, a local chaplain, is now personally affected after losing his grandson, and cousin in the fire.

Family members hoping closure will come soon.

"I'm glad to see the turnout," cousin Cordell Dement said. "I'm glad to see that many people cared enough to take time out to come out. So with that, that's a peace."
