ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Fundraising efforts are underway for two little boys and their mother who were burned during a two-alarm fire at an Abilene apartment complex Wednesday morning. 

A YouCaring page has been established by family members of Ashley Hardy and her sons - Aiden and Liam. 

All three were transported to the hospital with at least 2nd degree burns after a fire broke out at the Warwick apartment complex around 10:30 a.m.

Ashley's brother, Benjamin Reed, told KTAB and KRBC his sister acted heroically and was able to get Aiden out of the apartment before he was burned too severely then went back inside from Liam. 

Reed says that because she went back inside, Ashley suffered severe smoke inhalation and received 2nd and 3rd degree burns on 80% of her body and was flown to a burn unit in Lubbock.

Liam was flown to the burn unit as well. Reed says he was burned just as bad, if not worse than Ashley, and has not regained consciousness since he was resuscitated by first responders at the scene of the fire. 

Aiden remains at Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene, where he is receiving treatment for 2nd degree burns and smoke inhalation.

The Hardys were the only victims injured during the fire, but 21 residents in total from 8 surrounding units have been displaced. 

The cause of the fire has not been determined and the investigation is still ongoing. 

BigCountryHomepage will keep providing updates on the Warwick Apartment fire as they become available.
