First picture of mum, 33, and two children, 8 and 5, killed in house blaze as dad fights for lifeDecember 17, 2018
Justine Collison, 33, died alongside her eight-year-old daughter Izzy in the blaze that took hold of their Collingham home yesterday – just days before Christmas.
Five-year-old Harvey was pulled from the home but police today tragically confirmed he had also passed away.
Today, dad Gavin Collison, 34, remains in a serious condition after being rescued from the flames.
Tributes have today been paid to the family after the horror blaze, with one friend writing on social media: "Really can't believe I'm writing this.
"RIP Justine Collison and your little girl. Absolutely heartbreaking hearing this awful news. I was literally just chatting to you the other day.
"You were so lovely inside and out. Some fantastic memories of you at Halton. Thoughts are with your husband and family xxxx".
Another added: "Still can't believe it's true! Just can't stop thinking about the awful news of Justine Collison and her children passing away.
"You never know when your last breath will be. She took life by the horns and lived it to the fullest, still nowhere near long enough.
"My head is blown my heart is heavy. Devastated for ALL the family that I grew up with that treasured her and her children so much. I'm constantly praying for you all."
It comes as it was revealed a gran who was also at the house at the time managed to miraculously escape the flames.
Neighbours have told The Sun Online how the “traumatised” woman, aged 53, was seen walking out of the blazing house “in a complete daze but without a scratch”.
Diane Norton said the tragedy, which has stunned the close-knit community, was “heartbreaking” and “so desperately sad just before Christmas.”
Her husband Paul and son Elliot had frantically been banging on the front door to try to alert the sleeping family after seeing their conservatory engulfed in flames at around 7am on Saturday.
The £350,000 house which has been completely gutted was still sealed off last night as emergency services continued removing the charred contents.
The family had moved into the “dream home” two years ago after moving from nearby Norton Disney.
