NEW YORK – Rapper Cardi B says she will cover the burial expenses for all of the victims of the tragic Bronx fire earlier this month.
17 people, including 8 children, died in the high-rise fire in the Fordham Heights section of the city.
“I’m extremely proud to be from the Bronx and I have lots of family and friends who live and work there still. So, when I heard about the fire and all of the victims, I knew I needed to do something to help,” Cardi B said in a statement.
“The resilience of this city reflects everyday New Yorkers who never turn their back on one another,” Mayor Eric Adams said in a statement. “We are grateful for Cardi B, a real superstar on and off the mic, for granting some critical financial relief to families of the victims. The city will be forever thankful to her and also to the grassroots donors and corporate partners who have been able to offer immediate support for our neighbors in need, to reestablish themselves during this difficult time.”
