Neriza Fojas and Michelle Estrera both worked in the trauma unit at Community Regional Medical Center. The newlywed bride and best-friend were among the five people unable to escape when the limousine caught fire. Tuesday, their coworkers talked about the impact on the community.

"They are two of the best nurses that we have," said Maria Rosas. "Always helping everybody, always putting everybody before them. All the nurses, all the PCA's, all the patients."

The Women's husbands also took part in the services, but were too grief-stricken to speak.

Authorities are still investigating what sparked the blaze and why those who were killed were unable to escape from the limousine.
