Two toddler siblings died in an overnight fire a day after celebrating their first birthdays, a Georgia family says.

“Deputies responded to a house fire … and we are saddened by this the loss of two children“, the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.”

The family was in the process of planning a birthday party for the “sweet babies,” according to a GoFundMe started by Logan Bennett, who identified herself as their sister. She said her siblings just turned 1 on Saturday, November 12.

“They were very happy,” Bennett told WGCL. “Unfortunately, they never got the cake on their birthdayit’s just really sad.”

Employees of the state fire service determined the cause of the fire to be accidental, the TV channel reports. Additional information was not immediately available.

McClatchy News reached out to the Pike County Sheriff’s Office for information on Monday, Nov. 14, and was awaiting a response.
