NEW YORK (AP) — A Bronx community is set to bury more than a dozen loved ones, a week after a fire filled a high-rise apartment building with thick, black smoke.

A funeral service is to get underway Sunday at the Islamic Cultural Center.

Burial services were held for two children earlier in the week at a mosque in Harlem.

In all, 17 people suffocated while trying to escape the building through a smoke-filled stairwell.

Others remain in hospitals because of smoke inhalation.

A faulty space heater sparked the fire in a third-floor apartment, and smoke quickly rose up the stairwell of the 19-story building.
