DAHLGREN, Ill. (AP) — Services are set for a woman and her granddaughter killed in a southern Illinois house fire.

Hamilton County Coroner Ron Ewald says the bodies of 67-year-old Fern Thierry and 17-year-old Cara Munce were found in the kitchen after the blaze before dawn Sunday in Dahlgren.

The cause of the fire was not immediately clear, though Ewald doesn’t believe foul play was involved.

Graveside services for the victims will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Farnsworth Cemetery, north of Dahlgren.

The blaze is being investigated by the Illinois Fire Marshal’s Office.
