BASSFIELD, MS (WDAM) - Funeral services were held in Bassfield Saturday for a woman and her young child who died in a house fire last weekend.

Services for Latoyia Smith and her one-year-old daughter, Ivory, were held at Bassfield Pentecostal Apostolic Church.

They were killed in a fire at their home on Good Hope Road on March 3.

Also killed in the fire was the child's father, Carlos Smith.

He will be buried next week in his hometown of Macon, Mississippi.
