Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a fatal fire in Hawley that took the life of a 15-year-old girl. And now some of her closest friends, family, and members of the community are honoring her life.

It didn't take long after the fire broke out Sunday morning for Rylie's closest friends to decide they needed to come together to remember her. They made a memorial complete with crosses and personal messages. Many people walking by have stopped to write their own, or bring flowers for Rylie. She died trying to escape the fire in her family's home.

Authorities say they're still trying to figure out the cause.

Rylie's mother and five siblings are safe. If you'd like to help out the family, you can donate to the Bonham Family Benefit Fund at State Bank of Hawley's Moorhead or Hawley locations.
