In the hours after the fire, neighbors have rallied around the victims, who neighbors said are newlyweds with children.

By Wednesday morning, at least a dozen people had donated clothes, shoes or money to the family.

“Overwhelming. It’s just one less think they have to worry about,” neighbor Rebecca Santos said.

A GoFundMe account for the family had raised more than $2,000 for the family by Wednesday afternoon.

The couple told News4 they are leaning on their neighbors and what they called “little wins,” which were found passports and a wallet in the rubble.

“What can we do?” Santos said. “That’s the concern, what can we do to make it a little bit easier?”
