Four children and their great aunt died, while their two parents were left critical in a home explosion that rocked Pottstown Thursday, May 27, authorities said.

UPDATE: A GoFundMe has been set for three brothers, their cousin and grandmother killed in the Pottstown home explosion.

Those killed were identified as Francine White, 67, Alana Wood, 13, Jeremiah White, 12, Nehemiah White, 10, and Tristan White, 8. The children's great-grandparents' church identified them as siblings.

Kristina Matuzsan, 32, and Eugene White, 44 — whose Facebook pages show they are married — are in critical condition.

The blast at their Hale Street home occurred around 8:05 p.m., scattering debris across the lawn.

The cause remains under investigation by the Philadelphia Arson and Explosive Team, Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshal’s Office, Pottstown Fire Department, and Pottstown Police Department.
