The funeral for four people who died in a Rapid City apartment fire will be held Wednesday.

The 51-year-old Rock died in the blaze. The other victims were Rock's grandsons, 9-year-old Thomas Rosado, 5-year-old Dustin Rosado and 3-year-old Marquez Hawk Wing.

Funeral services for the four will be held Wednesday at the Mother Butler Center in Rapid City. Rock was an Army veteran, and she will be buried at the Black Hills National Cemetery.

Her grandchildren will be buried at the Makasan Presbyterian Cemetery in Oglala.
