Learning garden to honor 6 children killed in house fire

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Cummings Elementary School will honor the lives of the children killed in a South Memphis house fire.

Six children and three adults were killed in September 2016 when a home went into flames on Severson Avenue.

Thursday, Cummings will dedicate a learning garden to the students that were killed.

Fire officials called it the deadliest fire in almost a century.

Investigators determined a power cord to an air conditioning unit started the fire.
