No one was injured in the quick-spreading fire in D’Iberville on March 4th. Residents looked on as investigators sifted through the ashes the morning of the 5th, but they weren't alone. Throughout the day, people drove up to the apartment complex to see what they could do to help the residents displaced by the fire. Arbor View's manager bought supplies to help out. One woman, nine months pregnant, drove all the way from Gautier to make a special delivery, despite having contractions last night. Jessica Evans, a volunteer, says, "I cried and went to Facebook, and there's some pages that actually help out people: Pascagoula Hand Downs, Gautier Hand Downs, and I posted the link there and asked if we can gather up and help these people. There's a few other females out there trying to gather stuff as well." The American Red Cross and Arbor View Apartments are providing temporary housing for homeless residents. Some residents stayed at a shelter at the D'Iberville Civic Center overnight. Red Cross volunteers have been on hand there to help out. The Red Cross is also providing debit cards for fire victims.
