There is still no word on what caused a massive fire that damaged a historic building in Palmyra on Friday.

Firefighters say it started on the third floor of the building, just after 2:30p.m. Friday afternoon. Most of the building, which housed businesses and apartments, is a complete loss.

If you want to help those who lost everything in the fire, the American Legion in Palmyra is collecting items to donate. They have plenty of clothing for the families, but what they do need is small kitchen items, things like toasters, silverware and even plates.
The families also need daily bathroom necessities, like toothpaste, shampoo and soap.
Among the victims are two four years-olds and a 14 year-old girl, so they are also asking for any toys or games, as well as big items like beds, tables or lamps.
These families will have to start from scratch, so any donation would help these families rebuild.
To contact the Palmyra American Legion, call (315) 597-2412 or you can drop off donations at 132 Cuyler St. Palymra, NY 14522.
