FORT BRAGG, NC (AP) — A funeral will be held later this week for a Fort Bragg soldier and his two daughters who died in a house fire.

The funeral will be held Thursday at JFK Memorial Chapel on Fort Bragg for 36-year-old Chief Warrant Officer 2 Edward Cantrell and his daughters, 6-year-old Isabella and 4-year-old Natalia.

Cantrell died March 6 when he rushed back into his burning home in Hope Mills to try to rescue his daughters. The only survivor was 37-year-old Louise Cantrell, the wife and mother.

Authorities say the fire was accidental.

Visitation will be held 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday with the funeral at 1 p.m. Thursday. The three will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
