SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Two children who died in a North County condo fire last month will be laid to rest Friday morning.

Ten-year-old Cristos Lopez and his 7-year-old sister Isabella were killed at their father's Rancho Bernardo home on October 28. Their father was injured in the blaze.

The siblings attended Sunset Hills Elementary School, and friends described them as "inseparable."

Sam Trink, a family friend, told 10News the children's mother is doing her best to stay busy as she deals with the unimaginable grief at the same time.


Trink said Cristos and Isabella's mother wants to thank the Good Samaritan who called 911 when the fire broke out, which gave her the chance to speak to her son one last time.

The service for the siblings is scheduled to be held at the Grace Point Church in Carmel Valley (13340 Hayford Way) at 8 a.m. It is open to the public.

A GoFundMe account has been established to help pay for the funeral expenses.
