NEW ORLEANS - Fundraising efforts are under way for family members of three children and two adults killed in a New Orleans house fire.

The victims included 12-year-old Jade Anderson, 11-year-old Jason Anderson and 7-year-old Jala Anderson. The adults were 77-year-old Martha Anderson and 33-year-old Christina Squire.
