What happened to Mishael Morgan's family?

The Go Fund Me page shared by Mishael Morgan on social media shed a little more light on the horrific incident that took the life of five members of her family. It confirmed that a fire broke out around 2 a.m. on March 28 at their home in Brampton, Ontario, which took the lives of Nazir Ali and Raven Alisha Ali O'Dea, as well as their three children. "Our three little angels were their grandparent's pride and joy. Their smiles would light up the room as their curiosity usually got the best of them," Morgan's sister-in-law, Bismah Ali, wrote. She added, "As a family, we are devastated to lose two generations in a blink of an eye. Our homes are broken as we mourn a loss that we can never replace."

As of March 31, the Go Fund Me page had raised more than $58,000 Canadian dollars with the aim of raising $150,000, which will go towards funeral costs for the family of five. Raven's mom, Bonnie O'Dea, also lived in the house and survived the fire, but is in critical condition, per Global News.

Louie Felipa, Raven's dad, spoke to Global News about the tragic incident, sharing that the family's home was not equipped with working smoke detectors as they'd been making renovations to their home. Bismah told the outlet, "It's just really devastating and we're going to miss them. And I feel like it's never going to be the same."
