LANSINGBURGH, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The families displaced by last Friday’s fire in Lansingburgh will get some help from the community Monday.
Donations of clothing and personal items will be collected at the Lansingburgh Boys and Girls Club beginning at 10 a.m. More than a dozen people were left homeless when the fire ripped through the second avenue apartment building.
Everyone made it out of the building, but most lost everything. The fire has been deemed suspicious.
Officials close to the investigation say the intended target of the fire appears to be a level-one sex offender named David Dubois Jr. He lived on the second floor where the fire started. If the fire was a case of revenge, it’s left behind serious collateral damage.
Donations for the victims will be collected Monday at 10 a.m.
