Sad news this morning, as we learned that Dev Hynes, the man behind Blood Orange and past collaborator with Solange and Sky Ferreira, lost both his apartment and his dog, Cupid, to a fire last night . Dev took to Twitter to share a brief message that a fire occurred at his apartment while he was out, taking “everything he owns.” You can see his Tweets below.

Our best wishes go out to Dev at what must be a difficult time.

UPDATE: More info, pictures, and comments from other inhabitants of the building and neighbors can be found here.

UPDATE 2: Dev’s girlfriend’s father has set up a page where you can donate money to help out if you so wish. Click here.
