LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Rappers Drake and The Game have generously offered to pay for the funerals of six family members killed in an Ohio blaze, TMZ reported Tuesday.

The hip-hop artists each donated $10,000 to help cover burial expenses after hearing the sad story of Anna Angel, a woman who was working at Burger King when a fire tore through her home, killing her five young children and her boyfriend, the celebrity news website said.

"I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time," The Game wrote about the tragedy in an Instagram message.

"What [The Game] is doing will never be forgotten. Honored to be able to help people along side my brother," Drake later said in his own online message.

The producers of The Game's TV show, "Marrying the Game" also contributed $2,500 toward the family's funeral expenses, TMZ said.
