POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) – Funeral services are set for a 21-year-old woman from Connecticut who was among the three people killed when a fire tore through an off-campus home being rented by students at a Hudson Valley college.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that services for Eva Block of Woodbridge, Conn., are being held Monday afternoon at a funeral home in Fairfield, Conn.

Block was a senior at Marist College in the town of Poughkeepsie. Another female Marist student and a young man were also killed when a fire broke out early Saturday morning at a home rented by Marist students. Police haven’t released the names of the other two victims.

Four other people inside the house escaped by jumping out windows.
