Darren Calabrese/The Canadian Press The parents of seven children who died in a Halifax house fire a year ago are offering thanks to the public for the love and support they’ve received since the tragedy. Syrian refugees Ebraheim and Kawthar Barho survived the fire that destroyed their rental home in the Halifax suburb of Spryfield on Feb. 19, 2019. The couple’s seven children, who ranged in age from three months to their mid-teens, perished inside the home. Story continues below advertisement In a statement released Tuesday, the Barho family describes their loss as “immense” and say they miss their children every day. The couple says they have managed to find comfort in the kindness of strangers, the courage of first responders and in the dedication of health-care professionals. Investigators in Halifax have yet to identify a cause for the fire. In an update given last September, investigators said they were only able to determine that the fire began at the back of the house in the main-floor living room near a couch. Nothing was found to lead them to believe the fire was suspicious, and they ruled out smoking materials, kitchen activities and electrical faults as possible causes.

The true hearts of Canadians reaching out to embrace this couple and show the world that all are welcome. The true heart of Syrians reaching out to embrace our people as we stand with them in their grief. Prayers and much love to the Barho family how horrific for the parents of these 7 angels Did they ever determine the cause?

You people are crazy, they get out and seven die, my what a bunch of fools. 😥😥😥😥😥😥😥 I can't even imagine the heart ache they are still going through, bad enough to lose 1 person but 7 so sorry to hear. People can we be more vigilant when it comes to safety? It makes my life problems seem rather trivial.
