   Fire investigators still aren't sure what sparked an early morning home fire Monday that killed two Berkeley children and injured their parents.  
   Authorities say Stephen and Cheronna Towns escaped their burning home with their eight month old daughter by climbing out a bedroom window.  The couple was unable to reach their two young sons, 4 year old Stephen Junior and 3 year old Isiah.  Both boys died.  Their parents are hospitalized with burns and other injuries.  The baby wasn't hurt.  
   Stephen Towns is half of the gospel hip hop duo, Forever.  Because of his love of music, friends are organizing a benefit concert for the family.  In the mean time, they've set up an online fundraiser at  https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/9hG5b

   Thursday marked one year since 61 year old Patricia Harvill was found murdered in her home in the 9000 block of Harold.
