Vigil held for 3-year-old girl killed in Bridgeport fire

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WABC) -- A community in Connecticut wants a devastated mother to feel their support after she was unable to save her young daughter from a fire.

A church in Bridgeport held a vigil Monday night for 3-year-old Sincere Pettway.

Sincere's mother, Shaneese, managed to get two other children out of the building Sunday.

But when she and a neighbor tried to go back for Sincere, the heat was too intense.

Shaneese Pettway was unable to attend Monday night's vigil as she's undergoing treatment for burns and smoke inhalation.
