— Omg! This is so heartbreaking to me. What a tragic day for this family. I could not possibly imagine the pain and hurt they’re going through right now. I’m sending all my prayers up to heaven for those four precious angels and their mother. May they all rest in peace. #InTears

— Oh this just hurts. I will be praying and on my knees for this little one who survived and all who are affected by this.

— This is so heartbreaking!!! My heart and prayers go out to her friends and her loved ones. Saying an extra prayer for the child who made it out safely and thanking the passersby for their help.

— I wish this was a dream so we could all wake up with smiles on our faces, but instead our hearts are torn apart.

— We all need to make sure our smoke alarms, fire alarms & sprinkler systems are in working order. Make sure all exits are not blocked. Get your fire extinguishers! More importantly, we need to make sure our kids know what to do if something like this should happen. God forbid. We all need a safety plan. Again, my heart aches for this family.

— Sending prayers for the survivor and the other members of this family that have lost their lives. My heart couldn’t even fathom the grief that this family has endured.

— Sorry for your loss. God please watch over the little girl that survived.

— Such a heartbreaking story. Praying for the surviving child and family left behind as well.

— I did not know the family that died last night. But my hearts go out to them. 

— May god bless this family. Ya’ll are in my prayers. Damn, I’m choked up. 

— So sad, man. R.I.P.

— Prayers going out to the family. 

— R.I.P Messiah!!! Love you, baby girl.
