NORTH BERGEN - Donations are pouring in to help the victims of a massive fire last weekend in North Bergen.

At least 60 families were displaced from a high-rise apartment building on Kennedy Boulevard. Investigators say the fire, which appears to be electrical in nature, started on the top floor.

Now, loved ones and community members are donating everyday items to Our Lady of Fatima Church to help those affected rebuild their lives. A local bank has already put forward $10,000.

The drive will run until the end of next week.
