CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Funeral services for 7-year-old Glacia Ramsey and her younger 2-year-old sister Peaches Christburg are expected to be held this week at the Lucas Memorial Chapel in Garfield Heights.

Anyone interested in making donations to help with funeral related expenses can visit any Keybank location and say the donation is for the Peaches Christburg or Glacia Ramsey fund.

On Thursday, December 12, the children lost their lives in a apartment fire on Kipling Avenue.  Firefighters found the children unresponsive.  They were pronounced dead at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.  Investigators report that the girls were with their aunt who says an unknown male forced his way into the apartment and locked her in the bathroom before the fire started.  She was able to make it out of the apartment unharmed.

The homicide and arson units are helping with the investigation.
