AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Children and faculty at an Akron school held a special balloon release Friday afternoon to honor the 6-year-old girl that was killed in Monday's fatal fire.

Daisia Huggins was one of the seven victims that was killed in the devastating fire on Fultz Street, according to surviving family member Brittany Boggs. She attended the Helen Arnold Community Learning Center.

Students and teachers released the balloons Friday afternoon at the learning center.

Fire investigators are still determining what caused the house fire. Brittany told Cleveland 19 that her mother Angela Boggs, Angela's boyfriend Dennis Huggins, and five younger siblings were killed. A memorial of balloons and stuffed animals continues to grow outside of the charred home.

In addition to the memorial, a GoFundMe account has raised almost $60,000 towards funeral donations, as of Friday morning.
