BUCKEYE, AZ - A fiery crash in Buckeye Valley claimed the life of almost an entire family leaving a 16-year-old girl behind.

"She is doing as well as can be expected," said her cousin Jesse Owens. "We're just trying to support and love her."
Jerry Swift, his wife Seline, their 13-year-old son Jerry Jr., and their uncle Roger Keasling were all killed Saturday in a fiery crash right in front of their home.

Owens lives next door.
Outside the families' homes sits four crosses with flowers, stuffed animals and other mementos as a memorial to the four who were lost.
"It is still so fresh," said Owens. "It is always going to be a reminder to us."
A bake sale will be held to raise money for the funeral expenses on Wednesday at the Shamrock station near MC 85 and Miller.
