Donations to cover funeral expenses of fire victims requested

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The family of the two brothers killed in the September 17th fire on Seward Street downtown is seeking financial assistance.

    We were contacted by one of their relatives in Mexico.  Rebecca Battistoni Olivarria is a cousin of Roman and Adrian Olivarria Mora.

    She says they are  devastated by the loss of  the brothers  in this tragic fire.   She says their parents are trying to bring the brothers home for a proper burial.  "The cost of that is significant and we're just reaching out to the community and anybody who's willing to help the family bring the home.  No donation is too big or too small."
