Two neighbors comfort each other in the aftermath of a house fire on Saturday, March 24, 2012 in Charleston, W.Va. A fire tore through a two-story home that had no functioning smoke detectors, killing eight family members, including six children, Charleston Mayor Danny Jones said. Charleston Assistant Fire Chief Bob Sharp said the fire seems to have started in the middle of the home's main level. The cause is under investigation.
