Asheboro, NC -- According to a news release, the preliminary investigation shows that the fire was started accidentally.

The family told WFMY News 2's Tony Smith, the boys were 5-year-old Andrew and 3-year-old Logan Trogdon. Andrew and Logan were home with their mother and her boyfriend when the fire started in their mobile home.

Investigators say their mother, who is 36 weeks pregnant, the boyfriend and neighbors all tried to save the boys.

Sherrie Hurley suffered burns from the fire, but was released from the hospital Saturday afternoon.

On Sunday, Barbara Robinson said, she's remembering the young victims, as wonderful little joys. Robinson is the kid's great aunt.

"I tell you, if you're having a bad day, these two boys would just put a light in your heart and just make you feel good," said the boys' great aunt Barbara Robinson. "They just make you feel good when you see them. They always playing, they loved each other, they play well together."

Robinson tells us there's no money to help bury the children. And the community is trying to organize. There's several efforts underway, most of which are delayed until banks open.

On Monday, WFMY News 2 spoke to Adam Trogdon, the father of boys killed in the fire.

"When I think about their ages, I think there wasn't enough time with them," said Trogdon.

In addition to sharing his grieving story, he sent a message of gratitude to the Triad on Monday afternoon. He says, he's overwhelmed with the out cry of support from the community.
