Donations being accepted in Greenfield for families in apartment complex fire

Donations are being accepted to aid families that lost virtually everything in a Greenfield apartment fire.


Donation items can be taken to the Greenfield Crossing Apartment Management building (next to the complex pool) during their normal business hours, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm .  Items are needed for children two months up to 13 years of age.  Toiletries, food, shoes, and clothing are among the items being accepted. They can also take Walmart gift cards.


The Red Cross was on the scene of the early Monday morning fire and is involved helping the families as well.


Three people were taken to Hancock Regional for smoke inhalation.  Otherwise, all residents were accounted for and got out safe about 2:00 am Monday.  When firefighters arrived flames were already coming through the roof of the apartment building.


One floor inside the structure collapsed.  Four apartments on the second floor and two on fire floor were heavily damaged.


The cause remains under investigation.
