BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) - A candlelight vigil will be held Thursday night to remember four members of a Bulloch County family who were killed in a fire.

The vigil is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Southeast Bulloch High School in Brooklet.

The fatal blaze started just before 5 a.m. Wednesday at the family's home on Stilson Road in southeast Bulloch County.

Russell and his wife, Wendi, and their two youngest children 19-year-old Susannah and Haley, 17, were killed.

Susannah recently graduated from the Southeast Bulloch High School and was a student at the University of Georgia. Haley was a student at the high school and an active member of the band.

Teachers, students and friends will have to cope with the tragic news.

On Wednesday night, a balloon release was held to remember the Davises.

The state fire marshal is still trying to figure out exactly how this fire started.

The community has set up a Davis Family Fund at the Farmers and Merchants Bank in Brooklet.
