A community on Long Island came together to remember a baby boy killed in a house explosion one week ago.

Neighbors came out to comfort the parents of Raquan Palmer at a candle light vigil in Brentwood outside where the family's rented home once stood.

The 18-month-old was killed when the house suddenly blew apart.

Investigators believe the blast was caused by a propane leak in the basement.
