Cardi B has offered to pay the burial costs for all 17 people killed in a fire that ripped through a New York City high-rise.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced Wednesday that the Grammy-winning rapper had offered the financial relief for victims of the fire in the Bronx, where she grew up.
“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 the victims, I knew I needed to do something to help,” Cardi B in a statement.
The fire, which was New York City’s deadliest in three decades, was sparked by a faculty space heater, according to authorities.
