The Boone kids — two pairs of siblings, Lexi, 8, and Katie, 7, and Charlotte, 8, and Wes, 6 — went to a sleepover at their grandparents’ $6 million home on Sunday because Monday was a holiday. — As investigators unearthed a fifth body Friday from the ruins of a 16,000-square-foot mansion destroyed in a fire earlier this week, surviving family members who have lost their son, daughters and parents allowed a glimpse into their loved ones’ lives. They first went to Medieval Times at the Arundel Mills mall, ate dinner and then spent the night at the home of their grandparents, Don, 56, and Sandy, 63.

Charlotte Boone, 8, wanted to be known as a gamer, and she loved making videos with her pet guinea pig, Oreo, according to statements released by a family friend, Toni Aluisi of Washington. But early Monday morning, an inferno consumed the mansion, bringing down its seven-ton steel beams and reducing to ash a structure the size of seven average single-family houses. Her 6-year-old brother, Wesley “Wes” Boone, wanted to build robots and “looked up to his older sister immensely.” Their cousins, blue-eyed, towheaded sisters Alexis “Lexi” Boone, 8, and Kaitlyn “Katie” Boone, 7, were a year apart but looked more like twins.

He loved all his friends and he especially looked forward to seeing his classmates at school every day,” the family said. “He loved trips to the beach with his family.” Eight-year-old Lexi loved her friends from school, field hockey, lacrosse, and ice skating. Investigators are still looking for two more bodies and trying to figure out what caused the massive fire, one of the deadliest in the state in years. As Anne Arundel County Fire Department officials have announced the discovery of bodies each day for the past three days, they have not said whether the remains are adults or children.

Sandy loved animals especially her dogs and contributed to a number of animal welfare groups. “Sandy was incredibly sensitive to the needs of others and generous beyond words,” her family said. The following is a summary of their lives, based on the statements: Charlotte Boone: The 8-year-old brown-eyed girl was a gamer with “an epic love” of Minecraft. Colleagues knew him as a philanthropist, avid fisherman, and doting grandfather, the company, which makes software for cloud computing, said in a statement. “She was a one-of-a-kind original — fun-loving, caring, and generous,” the family’s statement said. “She loved every animal, especially her rescue dogs.” His also liked fishing, golf, skiing and entertaining. • To his wife, Sandy, each grandchild occupied a special place in her heart, according to the family. Either way, “she was going to be famous.” Katie Boone: Seven-year-old Katie “loved her family more than anything, especially her new brother.” She liked to sing Taylor Sift songs.

And, “for only having just turned 7, she was loving and thoughtful beyond her years.” Known to their grandchildren as Pop-pop and Dee-dee, Don and Sandy Pyle doted on the kids. Make time today to embrace your loved ones.” Local and federal officials were able to secure the structure and access the foundation of the 16,000-square-foot house Wednesday.

He is leading the investigation, along with a team from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “You’re looking at five standard houses put together,” he said Tuesday. “This is more of a commercial fire than it is a residential fire. That adds to it.” “We have some very unique challenges with this house,” Howarth said. “The construction of the house contained a lot of very heavy materials. We’re looking at some steel beams that weigh in the area of 7 tons.” When the first firefighters arrived early Monday, they received conflicting reports about whether the family may have been out of town. Pyle’s company biography described him as an industry veteran who held multiple CEO positions, with more than 25 years’ experience in information technology infrastructure software and hardware management.

Pyle told The Washington Post last year that after holding positions in a family business, he decided to look for an “industry that was in its infancy and something that would have growth potential.” He started in a sales position in a firm that connected computers over transmission lines, and later sold both hardware and software components for the Internet.
