Visitation begins for mobile home fire victims

 

MILAN (AP) — Mourners will gather in Milan to remember two sisters who died during last week's mobile home fire in a rural western Illinois community.

Visitation is being held Thursday at Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home for 10-year-old Jessica Harker and 13-year-old Holli Harker. The girls were among five people who died in the blaze in Sherrard.

A funeral for the two will be held on Friday.

The March 27 fire also killed 38-year-old Anna Viager and her 8-year-old daughter Breana Viager along with 15-year-old Cassandra Turner. A man and two boys escaped.

All five died from smoke inhalation.
