ROANOKE (WSLS 10) –  Community members will come together Monday to remember and pray for the McKinnon family following Saturday's deadly house fire.

St. John's Episcopal Church will host "A Service of Prayer and Remembrance" at the request of North Cross School where 10-year-old Patrick and 5-year-old Logan were students.

Patrick and Logan were killed when their Roanoke County home caught fire over the weekend. Their parents, Lindsay and Tom McKinnon were taken to the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center burn unit, according to family friend Pete Eshelman who sent a news release Sunday.

The McKinnon's friends, Christy and Zack Montoya and their two children who were visiting from Virginia Beach, were also taken to the hospital, Eshelman wrote.

Monday's service will include hymns and prayers for the family, according to St. John's spokesman Evan Hines.

The service will begin at 5 p.m. at the church, located at 1 Mountain Ave SW, Roanoke, VA 24016.

All are welcome.
