BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — "It's like I can see and hear my grandson."
It's been a week since a massive fire ripped through a home on Shirley Avenue in Buffalo, and tore a family apart days before Christmas.
The fire took three lives, 4 year-old Cianna Jones, her 26-year-old aunt Brianna Ross and a day later 8-year-old G'Shawn McGee who died in the hospital.
A balloon-filled memorial now sits outside the charred home.
7 Eyewitness News spoke with a teacher from G'Shawn's School, Bennett Park Montessori at the scene Wednesday. The teacher did not want to go on camera, but was overcome with tears after she left a teenage mutant-ninja-turtles stuffed animal at the spot where her student died.
She says McGee was very loved at his school, and was a great student.
Darryl Grinage not only lost his two grandchildren in the fire, but his daughter Brianna as well.
