NEW YORK, United States — The family of the four Jamaicans who died in last Thursday's fire in the Bronx have opened a GoFundMe account in the hope of raising enough money to have the bodies returned to Jamaica for burial.
The target is US$100,000 and as of early yesterday the site reported contributions totalling just over US$13,000 from 350 contributors, a day after it was started.

Karen Stewart-Francis, her daughters Kylie Francis, 2; and Shantae Young, 18; and stepdaughter Kelesha Francis, 7, were among 12 people who died after being trapped in the fast-moving blaze.
Stewart-Francis's husband, Holt Francis, remained on life support at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx yesterday.
Media reports here yesterday said doctors have informed the family that his prognosis is grim, but they are not ready to have him removed from life support. more
