Anthony Conti is the name of the seven-year-old boy who died in a house fire early this morning in a Lovejoy neighborhood.

The Conti Family confirmed his identity with our reporter Chris DiMaria this afternoon. 

The local community has rallied around the family with donations pouring in to the Mead Library on Ludington Street. The family's GoFundMe page says "we lost all of our possessions as well. Even though no amount of money can buy back my little man's life, we lost $275000 in possessions, including the house."

Here's a Facebook post from a family friend detailing what the family needs at this time: 

The family also has a GoFundMe  for those looking to donate. 

Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.
