Nicholas Gabriel died in Brampton fire
0 0

There wasn't an empty seat at North Bramalea United Church during the funeral for Nicolas Gabriel on Saturday.

Over 300 people commemorated the 10-year-old, who was known for his toothy grin, his sense of humour and - according to his 14-year-old sister - his loud burp.

Nicolas was killed in a massive fire at a Brampton townhouse complex last Sunday. 

The fire also left 100 people homeless.

The fire, which spread to about 18 adjoining homes, is currently being investigated by the Ontario Fire Marshal.

Nicolas was sleeping at his friend’s house when the fire broke out. The family escaped the fire but noticed their guest was missing once they were already outside.
