CATSKILL, N.Y. -- Funeral services were held Monday for the five family members who died in a fire last week in East Durham.
The services for members of the Mammano and Caffrey families made for a very emotional day in East Durham.
Grandparents Nicholas and Mary Mammano, as well as grandchildren Jonathen and Sophia Mammano and Jayden Caffrey, all died when a fire broke out Monday.
Dozens of cars followed in a procession from Catskill. Five hearses traveled down the road as bagpipers played at the church doors. A funeral at Our Lady of Knock Shrine was closed to the press, but community members say they are absolutely devastated by the loss.
The children’s father remains at a Syracuse hospital.
