at divine mercy parish. last night family and friends held a wake for those 4-year-old twins and the brothers. it was a small gathering with plenty more expected to pay their respects later this morning. it was a little more than a month ago early in the morning of july 5th a fire started on the porch of a home on the 6500 block of gesner street. the fire damaged 13 homes and five cars and four children could not be saved. this morning loved ones remember the four young children yet as for closure that may never come. just yesterday the philadelphia fire department released their findings on the case. after consulting with the fire marshal, the cause is ruled as undetermined because while they know where the fire started, any and all evidence of what started it was destroyed by the inferno. and another live look in
southwest philadelphia where that service will begin shortly. this tragedy, of course, touched people beyond the 6500 block of gesner and this funeral is open to the public. there's even a police presence out here as these loved ones prepare to say good-bye. live in southwest philadelphia this morning, i'm matt delucia, nbc 10 news. people in philadelphia came together to remember a murdered woman whose body was found stuffed in a duffel bag and left on the sidewalk. a crowd of people walked in memory of laura araujo last night. friends, family and community members marched from the art institute where laura was a recent graduate to the art museum. there they held a candlelight vigil for the 23 year old. >> she was just so wonderful and we want to have her life celebrated and have something good come out of this. >> laura's body was found next to an abandoned home in

about police departments that stockpile military hardware and then feel compelled to use it. turning to philadelphia's school budget crisis. superintendent dr. william hite says class will start on time this year september 8th even though the district still has an $81 million budget gap. hite says he'll make $32 million in cuts that he hopes are just temporary because he's counting on the cigarette tax bill to pass through the pennsylvania state legislature next month. right now high school students who live within two miles of school will not be able to take the bus and to save money schools will be cleaned less frequently. plus, vacant school police officer jobs will not be filled. >> determining that opening on time with these further cuts was the least harmful decision for students and families. >> hite says if the shortfall is not closed, he'll have to make drastic reductions including
about 1,000 layoffs. count on nbc 10 follow the developments the philadelphia school budget crisis and how it will affect the next academic year for the city's children. this morning philadelphia's taney dragons have one win under their belt at the little league world series. first inning, taney jumps out on top with a huge three-run home yore and then mo'ne davis throws a complete game shutout. eight strikeouts. only gave up two hits. taney beat south national 4-0. davis becomes the first female pitcher to win a game in little league world series history and talked about becoming a role model. >> very unreal. i never thought that at the age of 13 i would be a role model
but kind of now it's real so always wanted to be a basketball role model but being a baseball role model is really cool. >> she's doing it. the team takes on texas tomorrow night. you can count on nbc 10 to follow the taney dragons on their quest for a world series title. happening now, the regatta is under way. here's a look at boathouse row. it's the largest rowing competition for athletes with physical disabilities. the competition will go until this afternoon. drivers are detoured from strawberry mansion bridge to fountain green drive. kelly drive will reopen at 6:00 tonight. this morning we're getting our first look at the couple accused of abducting two amish sisters.

statement disputing charges and defending perry's actions saying "we'll continue to aggressively defend the governor's lawful and constitutional action and believe we will ultimately prevail." investigators say the new york couple charged with kidnapping two amish girls intended to injure or sexually abuse the sisters. right now 39-year-old stephen howells and 25-year-old nicole vaisey are being held until a court hearing on tuesday. girls were abducted on their family's farm near the canadian border in upstate new york on wednesday. they were found safe on thursday night. authorities say the girls were dropped off about 15 miles from where they were taken and then walked to the closest home they saw to ask for help. this morning it's still unclear what led chinese officials to prevent people from leaving the country to see pope francis in south korea. dozens of catholic clergy anders were stopped at the airport
earlier this week. experts on the chinese church say the travel bans were likely enforced by local communist party leaders in charge of religious affairs. meanwhile, today, pope francis honored south korean martyrs in a special ceremony in the capital of seoul. the holy mass recognized mart martyrdom of those that lost their lives. the pope is on a five-day trip to south korea. it's the first papal visit to that country in 25 years. up next, we'll meet this week's wednesday's child and a saturday forecast you're sure to love, right, brittney? >> temperatures are warmer today versus yesterday. we stay in the 70s yesterday. middle of august or what? look at those clouds in the beautiful picture of cape may. storms will return. i'll let you know when in your seven-day forecast.
