Many of the people who lived in the building lost everything in the fire, but they didn’t have to go far for help. Donations were collected at the Eagle River Lions Club, but the collection and distribution was put on hold while they for a new location to hold the massive amounts of donations.

Members said their building has been rented, and there’s simply not enough room to handle everything. They’re considering a hangar at Birchwood Apartment as the new collection and distribution site.

Meanwhile, Linda Borowski’s son, Daniel Prine, has set up a GoFundMe fundraiser to get his mother’s body back to Iowa where she will be buried.
