A funeral’s being held for the first of five victims who were killed in last week’s mobile home fire in a rural western Illinois community.

Services are being held this morning in Milan for 10-year-old Jessica Harker and 13-year-old Holli Harker.

The sisters were killed in the March 27 fire in Sherrard. The blaze also killed 38-year-old Anna Viager and her 8-year-old daughter Breana Viager, along with 15-year-old Cassandra Turner. A man and two boys escaped.

Family members say Jessica Harker was a 5th grader at Matherville Intermediate School who was a Girl Scout, rock collector and avid book reader.

Meanwhile Holli Harker was an 8th grader at Sherrard Junior High. She played clarinet and bassoon and loved to dance.
