DELHI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) – A Cincinnati printing business is working to help 12 families displaced by an apartment fire in Delhi Township on Sunday.
The fire happened at Glenhaven Apartments at around 2:40 a.m.
“I came outside the front and all I was was just smoke swirling in the air,” Hailey Plumlee, a witness said.
Ally Magiliano, who owns ASAP Custom Prints and Apparel, said she woke up at around 2:30 a.m. wen a neighbor alerted her about the fire.
“They tried to get some fire extinguishers, but they couldn’t get upstairs,” Magliano said. “There was already too much smoke. She was on the second floor, the fire was on the third floor and they couldn’t get back upstairs.”
Firefighters said no one was injured, but families are dealing with the aftermath of losing everything in the flames.
Magliano said she started using Facebook to gather donations for victims.
“I have a lot of siblings and friends that were able to donate their kids clothes for all ages and all genders,” Magliano said.
Magliano said she’s also collecting donations at the print shop. She said some of the family’s needs are toiletries, sheets, towels and kids items.
“A lot of the kids need school supplies, backpacks, folders, pens, pencils – things like that,” Magliano said. “They also need school clothes to get them through the next week.”
