Vigil held for two young boys killed in fire in Humboldt Park

CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) - Family members held a vigil Sunday to remember two young boys who were killed in a fire in Humboldt Park.

Yadel Albino, 3, and Yahual Campos, 8, were killed in the fire. Their mother Maritza Campos, and younger sibling Yovani Albino, 18 months, are hospitalized.

"I don't think you can cope with losing two children. I don't think you can heal at all," said Elizabeth Ortiz, the boys' grandmother. "They were great kids. They were perfect."

The children's heartbroken father attended the vigil. Relatives said he had a dream last night that the dead boys told him they are in a better place.

The family living downstairs escaped. 

"I have a son of my own, and I wouldn't know the pain of losing my son," said neighbor Kevin Ocampo.
