GARDINER — A fire relief fund has been established to help residents displaced from a Winter Street apartment building by a fire Monday.

The fire in a four-unit apartment building at 37 Winter St. drove 11 people from their apartments, including a 16-month-old baby.

Firefighters extinguished the fire, but all tenants were forced to find other accommodations because the building’s electricity and water services were shut off. City records indicate the building is in foreclosure.

Those who wish to help the fire victims may donate to the Fire Relief Fund, either by dropping off a check at Gardiner City Hall or mailing it to the United Way of Kennebec Valley at 121 Commercial St., Augusta, ME, 04330. City officials said all of the proceeds will go to the fire relief fund.
