OCEAN CITY, Md.- According to the Red Cross, nine adults and three children lost everything from a fire on Wednesday at the Bradley on the Bay Condominium complex on 37th Street in Ocean City.
Nine units were damaged from the flames and from heavy water damage and the community wants to help.
"When there is a fire like this and it takes out a whole home, you literally have nothing except what's on your back, and we just personally want to try to do the best we can, as far as getting the word out and helping as much as possible," said Monica Hanshaw of Ocean Pines.
Hanshaw works with some of the victims at Fager's Island restaurant.
"They're hard workers, they're good people and not only working with them," Hanshaw said. "I consider them friends and hearing that other families involved and children hits home."
Hanshaw created the Bradley on the Bay Condo Fire Relief Fund Page on Facebook. She is collecting money via PayPal online and gaining support.
Local businesses are also making donations and volunteering to be drop box locations for people to drop off gift cards, money, or towels and toiletries for the victims.
