    Community mourns neighbors lost in Feltonville fire

    Neighbors and community members gathered to remember the four who died earlier this week in a Feltonville rowhouse fire at a candle light vigil Friday night.

    Rasheedah Wilson and three children, Jamar Nobles, 14, Minyan Wilson, 11, and Shanai Patter, 8, were killed when a fire tore through their rowhome early Thursday morning, reports the Philadelphia Daily News.

    “It happened so fast. I cried all day,” next-door neighbor Jennifer Tercier told David Gambacorta of the Daily News.
