KANKAKEE, Ill. (WLS) -- A vigil was held Friday night for two young brothers killed in a Kankakee apartment fire that investigators are calling arson.

Friends and family gathered at Byrd Park to remember 2-year-old Ju'shaun Watson and 4-year-old Justice Stewart.

The boys were asleep when their apartment caught fire last week. They died of smoke inhalation.

Police believe they know who started the first, but have not yet made an arrest.
