BELL ISLAND, N.L. Funeral services will take place this week for three young children killed in a tragic house fire on Bell Island, N.L.

The fire on Dec. 20 claimed the lives of a seven-year-old girl, her five-year-old brother, and another five-year-old boy who was their cousin.

The services will be held Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. at St. Michaels Church on Bell Island, about 35 kilometres west of St. Johns.

Police say the fire was caused by an electrical problem, and spread quickly through the wooden two-storey home.

Three adults and two children survived.

Residents of the community have banded together since the fire, collecting household items and cash for the two families involved.
