    A fundraiser set for Sunday will honor a victim killed in a house fire in New Jersey.

    The fundraiser will honor 24-year-old Brendan Gormley, who died in a house fire on Tereck Road in Buena Vista earlier this month.

    The Daily Journal reports the fundraiser is being held by friends of Gormely, with proceeds going to support his family.

    The fundraiser is set for 1 p.m. at the Rail on Harding Highway in Richland.

    The Daily Journal says the fire ripped through Gormley’s home on December 2. His parents were home at the time but managed to escape.
