Mercy High alum mourned after fire killed her and 2 children

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - A second little girl has died after Wednesday's house fire that killed her sister and mother.

Fire officials identified the family Friday as Alicia Evans, who graduated from Mercy High School, and her daughters Amani and Layla.

Alicia attended Mercy High School all four years, graduating in 2010.

The high school posted a condolence message on Facebook, and they put up a picture of Alicia in their chapel.

FOX45 spoke with Cindy Magruder, who was Alicia's former adviser and was very close with her.

She remembers Alicia as a quiet student with a beautiful smile, and says her kindness is what stood out about her.

Her former adviser just found out about Alicia's death today and is devastated. She says there's nothing you can say right now to make this any easier.

"I can't even think of what to say, I haven't even formulated in my mind what happened, and it's really Alicia," said Magruder. "So, I'm having a hard time myself with this, I'm hoping people can say something to me to help me through it. I do have wonderful memories of her. She has a great smile; just a really nice, good girl."

On Friday, Mercy is holding a community prayer service for Alicia and her two girls. They're inviting Mercy families, alumni, former faculty and staff members, and friends - anyone who wants to come to join them in thoughts and prayers.

The cause of death released Friday was thermal injuries and smoke inhalation. Officials say 28 people have died in fires in Baltimore this year, the highest number since 2007.
