Phoenix condo fire leaves father and 4 kids dead

A Phoenix condo fire has left a man and his four children dead, fire officials said.

The fire happened just after 11 p.m. at a condo unit near 35th Avenue and Northern on Wednesday night. Firefighters reported seeing flames come out of the windows while the building was filled with smoke.

First responders carried out five victims and had to treat them with "advanced life support measures."

The children - one girl and three boys between the ages of 5 and 12 - were rushed to the hospital in extremely critical condition. Two of the children died at the hospital. The other two kids died several days later.

The children who died were identified as Dov Boyer, 7; Nachman Boyer, 8; Tamar Boyer, 11; and Shevach Boyer, 9.

"It was consistent with mostly, likely some…smoke inhalation and potential burn injuries," said Capt. Scott Douglas with Phoenix Fire.

The kids' father, 52-year-old Shimone Boyer, died from his injuries at the scene.

"There is no indication, right now, that would point us in the direction that this was purposely set," Phoenix Fire Capt. Rob McDade said. "Fire investigators can tell us at this time they have no yet located any working smoke detectors in the home. This is preliminary, but that is where it seems to be pointing at they were not present or not functioning if they were present."

The cause is still under investigation.

On Sunday, four days later, the community mourned the family at a memorial service. More than a hundred people showed up to pay their respects. 

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family.
