While authorities have not released her name, CBS 3 media partner Mass Live and The Republican reported Saturday night that 15-year-old Halee Hilton fell victim to a house fire early that morning.
Sunday, friends and neighbors continued to pay their respects to Halee and her family.
A makeshift memorial has formed in front of the house at 28 Glen St.
Signs, flowers and candles have all been placed on the snow-covered front yard.
No one was willing to talk on camera out of respect to the family, but everyone had positive things to say about the freshman at Holyoke High School.
Neighbors told CBS 3 that a candle light vigil is planned for next Saturday evening.
