LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) -

A mother and two children hospitalized after a house fire in Lancaster early Thursday have died from their injuries. Kordell Kuhns, 2, died Saturday afternoon at the hospital.

Crystal Kuhns died at Crozer-Chester Medical Center near Philadelphia Friday morning and her 4-year-old daughter Mickey died Thursday night, according to a hospital spokesman.

Kuhns's husband David, 6-year-old son Shawn Kuhns, 8-year-old Skylar Kuhns, and home owner Jimmie Moore died Thursday.

The four-alarm fire at 115 E. Clay Street started at around 3 a.m. and has been blamed on a cooking accident. Officials said frozen potatoes were left in the oven.

According to investigators, 14 people were inside the home at the time of the fire, which was not up to code with fire detectors.

His family said the 64-year-old Moore had taken in a family who had lost their own home.

Heather Styer is collecting donations for the surviving members of the Moore family. She is asking for diapers, wipes, grocery cards and Walmart gift cards. If you are interested in donating, you can email Styer at Heatheriamwhoiamstyer@facebook.com.
