A funeral will be held Wednesday for two young brothers who died in a house fire in Queens.

The fire broke out in Springfield Gardens on June 17.

At first, the 8-year-old boy escaped. But he went back into the home to save his 17-month- old brother.

Both became trapped and died.

Two adults and three other children escaped.

Investigators say a faulty light fixture in a bedroom started the fire. The home did not have smoke detectors.
