The two victims of the deadly fire in a Boro Park house were laid to rest Tuesday.

The three-alarm fire broke out in a private home on 44th Street between 11th and 12th Avenue.

The victims, a 61-year-old man and a 59-year-old woman, were evacuated in critical condition to Maimonides Hospital. Both were later declared dead at the hospital.

EMTs also treated a 19-year-old woman at the scene who was injured during the fire.

The funeral took place at the Shomrei Hadas Chapels funeral home.
