BALTIMORE - A memorial service is planned for next week for five victims of a Baltimore fire.

Nancy Worrell, three grandchildren and a great-grandson died Thursday morning in a fire that tore through a northeast Baltimore row home.

They'll be memorialized this coming Thursday in a service.

Nancy Worrell's husband, Wilson Worrell, also was seriously injured and remains hospitalized in serious condition. His mother, Barbara Hopkins, tells The Baltimore Sun that he isn't yet able to communicate but can squeeze his family's hands as they talk to him. (

The fire remains under investigation.
