After a fire in the Bronx that left 19 people dead, Governor Kathy Hochul said the state would establish a victims compensation fund.
“We will not forget you. We will not abandon you. We are here for you,” Hochul said.
Nine of those killed were children, while dozens more have been injured and others have lost their home.Of the injured, 13 are said to be fighting for their lives.
“There'll be money to help them find new housing, for burial costs, for whatever they need,” Hochul said.
