Funeral services held for 2 sisters killed in fire

Funeral services for two young sisters were held in the Bronx Saturday, after they died in a fire inside their home Wednesday night.



About 100 people shut down 166th Street outside Paak Funeral Home where services were held for 18-month-old Amanda Jabie and 2-year-old Jannubi Jabie.



As News 12 The Bronx has reported, a fire ripped through the Webster Avenue apartment while their mother, 26-year-old Haya Conce, was across the street at a laundromat. Officials say she left them alone for approximately 40 minutes with incense burning, which cause furniture to ignite.



Officials say 10 people in total were injured in the fire.



Conce was questioned by police, and will not face any criminal charges.
