HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston-area woman whose mother and three children were killed last week during the state’s widespread power outages says she hopes to use money from a fundraising campaign to increase awareness about fire safety.

Jackie Nguyen, 41, said that amid frigid conditions she was using a fireplace to keep the family warm in their home in Sugar Land, Texas.

The Houston Chronicle reports that her three kids and her mother were all killed.

Nearly a week after the fire, there are no updates on the investigation into the cause of the blaze.
