      Funeral set for Elmira siblings killed in house fire

      A funeral service is set for the four New York siblings who died in a fire at a relative's upstate home last week.

      The Star-Gazette of Elmira reports that calling hours for the fire victims will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at the McInerny Funeral Home in Elmira. A funeral service will follow. Afterward, the four are to be buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Elmira.

      Last Friday night's fire killed 17-year-old Courtney Stanton, 10-year-old Amera Mansour, 7-year-old Nidal Mansour, and 5-year-old Jordan Mansour.

      The blaze occurred at the home of a relative where the family had been staying for the past year. The children's mother and another sibling weren't home when the fire broke out.

      The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
