Drake and The Game have both agreed to cover the funeral costs for the six people killed in a mobile home fire in Tiffin, Ohio, Sunday morning.
Anna Angel was working an early morning shift at Burger King when the fire started. Her boyfriend and five children were killed before she returned home. The children were identified as Tiara Angel, 6, Stormie Huey, 5, Trinity Huey, 4, Sunshine Huey, 3, and Domonic Fresch, 2. The male remains unidentified.
Tiffin Fire Chief William Ennis Jr. said the fire started in the center of the mobile home, engulfing the home within minutes.
The Burger King where Angel has been working for seven years started taking donations to help pay for the funeral expenses Sunday.
“Anna is a super hard worker, and she supported that family,” said Pat Boes, manager of the Tiffin Burger King. “She didn’t have much, but what she had was five great kids.”
Boes added, “Anything and everything is needed. She’s lost everything.”
Tiffin City Schools officials made plans to have a crisis team assembled at Washington K-1, where Stormie was a kindergartener and Tiara was a first-grader. The team includes guidance staff, two psychologists, counselors, and a pastor.
The Game and Drake have agreed to donate $10,000 each to help Anna Angel pay for her children and boyfriend’s funeral costs. Producers of the The Game’s reality series, Marrying The Game, donated $2,500.
Drake posted a picture of the family on his Instagram Tuesday explaining his and The Game’s donations.
The Toronto rapper wrote:

The Game recently pledged $1 million to The Robin Hood Project, which he described on his Instagram as, “One man. One million dollars. One goal. Giving $1,000,000 of my own $$$ to people around the world just because I feel like it.”
The Compton rapper — whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor — also donated $10,000 to the funeral of 6-year-old Tiana Ricks, who was shot Sunday in California. Snoop Lion also donated an undisclosed amount to the Ricks’ funeral.
