The fire at Rainbow Terrace Apartments on Garden Valley Avenue initially started in a unit's kitchen, but later reignited and spread throughout the entire building. At least 60 residents were displaced as a result of the fire.
The Red Cross is providing temporary and emergency shelter to the displaced residents, but they still need other short-term needs.
The two sponsors of the GoFundMe page are seeking to raise $5,000 per family for a total of $150,000.
Furniture and other household needs like food, appliances, clothing, diapers, toiletries, and more are also needed.
As of Wednesday morning, more than $5,000 were raised by 101 people in one day.
If contributions exceed the $150,000 goal, a scholarship fund will be set up to benefit the youth impacted by the fire at Rainbow Terrace.
