LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- The three young children who were killed inside their burning mobile home were laid to rest Thursday.

A funeral was held at Palm Mortuary for 2-year-olds David Gouailhardo and Skylar Lafia and 1-year-old Aryana Lafia.

The three died after their trailer caught fire June 15.

The generosity of an anonymous donor ensured those three young children received a proper burial.

Jewish Federation of Las Vegas President and CEO Elliot Karp said he was pleased that someone in his community stepped up to help out.

"Just the fact that it was such a tragic house fire, and for three young children to lose their lives … That's something that no parent should ever have to know from, and let alone three young children like this,” he said.

"I think it's an indication of care and compassion that certainly our community believes in, and I think the greater community of Las Vegas believes in."

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
