The victim of Wednesday's fatal fire in Woodbridge has been identified as a 21-year-old Avenel man who had apparently been providing for his family in Haiti.
Chadly Julien's body was found shortly after fire crews responded to 88 South Inman Ave., around 9 a.m., Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone said.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation, authorities said.
Meanwhile, more than $18,400 had been raised on a GoFundMe for Chadly's family.
Campaign founder Bleriot Thompson said Chadly had been sending a portion of each paycheck to his family in Haiti.
"We want to give Chadly the memorial that he deserves," Thompson wrote.
"I am currently asking for donations to help aid his family through this difficult time."
