A five-alarm fire at 754 Manida Street destroyed a four-story apartment building on March 9 afternoon and led to over a dozen injuries to firefighters and residents of the building.

The fire also claimed the possessions of the families who lived in the building. The Point Community Development Corp. has begun a drive to help them.

The Point is accepting donations at its community center, 940 Garrison Avenue. Every cent collected, The Point says, will go to the families.
