ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A fundraiser is planned for a St. Paul family who lost a 4-year-old child in a house fire.

The candlelight vigil and benefit will be held Sunday beginning at 4 p.m. at the Hmong House restaurant in North St. Paul. Ntshialiag Yang died in a Feb. 8 fire at the family’s home in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood.

Her father, Peter Yang, was able to help his four other daughters, his wife and his mother from the burning home. He searched in the smoke unsuccessfully for his fifth daughter.

Peter Yang’s brother, Michael Yang, tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press (https://bit.ly/178WdYB ) that family is grateful for the outpouring of love and support from people across the country. The Yang family lost all their possessions in the fire.
