MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
The charred units are now boarded up and Rockingham Manor managers are still assessing the damage.
Managers say four of the 12 families have been moved to other units in the complex.
The remaining displaced residents are in a Montgomery hotel courtesy of the American Red Cross and the property owner.
"We have apartments for them to move into, we're just working right now as far as getting the appliances delivered to set those apartments up," Rockingham Manor Apartment manager Janesha Jones said.
Now there's a huge push to get donations for these families who are starting from scratch. They are sorting through items already donated.
"It's really good to see the community coming out showing support," Jones said.
She says current residents and even strangers from the community started dropping off items Friday.
But there's still so much more needed from furniture to dishes and everything in between.
Many of these victims are school-aged children who need school uniforms.
"We have a resident that has newborn babies so they are asking about cribs, clothing, carriers, car seats, anything to assist them with their babies," Jones said.
Residents like Kenyarda Singleton welcomes all the help he and has family can get.
"Everything's gone. All I got is what I got on. I tried to salvage a few memories of my mom cause she passed. I'm get hoping for the best," Singleton said.
Managers say a doctor in Montgomery offered her rental properties to house two of the families.
So there is an outpour, but there are still eight families who are not in permanent housing yet and will need help until they're placed.
If you'd like to help these fire victims, you can call the apartment management at 334-281-8708 or drop by the complex located at 3453 Audubon Road.
