Girl, 7, and boy, 10, killed in Rancho Bernardo condo fire – The San … – The San Diego Union-Tribune

For the first time, 10-year-old Cristos Lopez was old enough to do the scaring at the annual Halloween school carnival. Dressed as a skeleton grim reaper, the fifth-grader worked the haunted house Friday night, spooking the little kids and loving every minute of it.

Meanwhile, his sister, 7-year-old Isabella Lopez — who everyone called Bella — showed off her sassy version of “Monster High” character Frankie Stein, from the striped wig down to the black-and-white dress shoes.

The last night of their lives began with playful frights and ended in a horrific fire that consumed their two-story condominium in Rancho Bernardo.

Both children were carried away from the inferno by firefighters, but their injuries were too severe. They were pronounced dead at separate hospitals later Saturday morning.
