young life being snuffed out when it has hardly begun...reminds me of all the young life being snuffed out early by being aborted...not really much difference in age as these little humans that died in this fire....the good, they die young

I agree with all of your comments. This is so tragic and sad. I feel awful for the parents and other family members who lost their grandchildren, nieces and nephews, etc.

Although I have read comments about the negligence of the property owner, I have not read any articles blaming faulty wiring or anything. Im a homeowner, but have rented many years ago and know how landlords can be so cheap at repairs and ignore hazards. I hope this is not the case-if it is-the guilt should weigh heavy on their conscience.

Prayers to all.

I agree Uncommonsense it's really awful. I just don't get how it could happen... sure fires happen but I don't understand why they couldn't get out like the parents did.

I might never go to Bridgeport again that street is haunted for sure.

They were just babies They had their whole lives in front of them Easter probably couldn't get here fast enough for them Thinking of coloring easter eggs with mom and wondering what will be in their easter baskets this year I pray they never felt the flames and simply slept peacefully through this and never knew what happened Three little angels that left this world way too soon Some say men don't cry Well If you're a father and this doesn't make you cry then you have no heart Mine is broken

RIP babies

Instead of leaving toys at the scene, wouldn't it be nicer to donate them to a shelter in the childrens names? This family is going to need all the prayers it can get.

This is really sad. Are the parents even aware yet that they lost their children? They won't even be able to attend the funeral, will they.

I hope they figure out what happened and it helps to prevent this type of tragedy in the future.

The property owner has ALOT of questions to answer!!!
