SALEM, N.Y. -- A benefit concert was held to remember a Salem family rocked by tragedy.
On July 13th, Tammy Palmer, her infant granddaughter Niyah Durham, her son Lawrence Berg, his girlfriend Clarissa Porlier, and Robert Sanford were killed in a house explosion.
Saturday night's concert was the community's way to remember those who lost their lives and to help their families. Organizers say it was also a way to mend the close-knit community still in mourning.
Families of the victims watched from the front row of the historic Washington County courtroom, where the concert was held.
Organizers say while they don't know any of the families personally, they had to come together to help the family.
The cause of the explosion remains under investigation.
The family is also grieving the death of Palmer's son-in-law and the father of the baby. State Police said Darrell Durham died at Westchester Medical Center where he was being treated at the burn unit. He was the sixth person to die from the explosion.
