A fire that raged in Southwest Philly over the Fourth of July weekend took the lives of four young children after claims of a delayed response by the Philadelphia Fire Department. To show his support for the victims and the community, Meek Mill, a North Philly native, showed up on the scene earlier this week.

“I just wanted to come by and show my support to all of the families and everybody that was hurt by this situation,” Meek told NBC Philadelphia. “I feel I’m in a position where I can help these people. Anything I can do to help them with their losses, I’m gonna do it.”

The MMG rapper also said that he plans on donating money to the victims’ families. Meek walked the streets of Southwest Philly and stopped and spoke to appreciative members of the community. “I want to thank Meek Mill for coming here,” said Patrick Sanyeh, the father of the two boys who were killed in the fire. “That’s a real thing your’e doing, brother. We’re all fathers. To everyone, we need help. We need the whole city’s help so this doesn’t happen to somebody else.”
