There was an emotional memorial Tuesday night for the seven people killed in Sunday's apartment fire in Cicero.A group of ministers organized the service with many of the victim's relatives and friends attending. They sang, prayed and gave each other words of encouragement.

The victims -- five of which were from the same family -- were apparently in the attic of the three-flat when the fire started.

State fire marshals will be on the scene Wednesday morning to help pinpoint what started the fire.

Cicero officials say there have been complaints of sanitation issues about the property. But inspectors found no evidence that too many people were living in the building.
