CLEVELAND--There's unspeakable pain Monday for the family of two little girls killed in a deadly house fire Thursday night.

"It's like a dream you want to wake up from. You want someone to tell you it's not real," said Leah Love, aunt.

Two sisters, 2-year-old Peaches Christburg and 7-year-old Glacia Ramsey, were killed when their upstairs apartment on Kipling Avenue in Cleveland went up in flames.

"These were two little girls who thought about baby dolls, what to eat, and nail polish.  And they loved their Mommy and their grandma," added Love.

"I just loved them so much," cried Maxine Wallace, grandmother.

Midst the pain, there is anger.

Police say a man broke into the apartment and shoved their babysitter into a bathroom.

The babysitter says she remained there until she smelled smoke and fled the building, and then called police.

"They were two innocent babies. What horrible person can even think to do something as horrible as they've done?" asked Love.

And while police and fire investigators try to figure out who did this, Peaches and Glacia's family must plan a funeral this Saturday.

Funeral services for Peaches and Glacia Ramsey will be held at Zion Pentecostal Church of Christ at Harvard Avenue in Cleveland.

The viewing will be held at 9:30 a.m. and the funeral will be held at 10:30 a.m.

There is a fund set up for both children at any Key Bank location.
