2 Adults, 4 Kids Killed in Blaze Laid to Rest

A funeral is set for four children, their mother and step-grandfather who were killed when their Pittsburgh-area home burned last month.

Fifty-five-year-old Ronald Egenlauf Sr., his 27-year-old daughter-in-law Hope Jordan, and her four children were killed when the blaze tore through their McKeesport home on Oct. 18.

Twenty-three-year-old Keith Egenlauf escaped, but is recovering from burns on 55 percent of his body. He and Jordan married last December, and she and her children, ages 2 through 7, moved into the home where Egenlauf had lived with his father for several years.

The funeral was scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Monday at the Hunter Edmundson-Striffler Funeral Home in McKeesport. Burial will follow at Round Hill Cemetery in nearby Elizabeth Township.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
