Final goodbye for sisters killed in fire

Posted: Updated:

Two young sisters killed in an Orange County fire were laid to rest over the weekend.

The sisters, 12-year-old Kassandra and 10-year-old Julia Dorritie, were mourned by loved ones Saturday at St. Joseph's church in Port Jervis.

"It's just heartbreaking, you know," says Michael Surake, of Port Jervis. "That's why I came."

The Dorritie sisters and their friend, 12-year-old Devon Fahey, were having a sleepover Sept. 28 when a candle apparently ignited a fire and they became trapped inside 106 Peenpack Trail.
