KVUE -- Donations are pouring in for families left homeless by a devastating fire at a Jollyville apartment complex.

Fire consumed three buildings at the International Residence Apartments on Thursday. A total of 68 families, more than 100 people, lost their homes to the blaze.

Many of those families spent the night at a shelter set up at Northwest Fellowship Church.

Dozens of people went to that church, as well as Round Rock School District donation locations, Thursday to drop things off for the victims.

The Austin Disaster Relief Network has organized several donation drives Friday.

People are asked to donate new or gently used furniture, mattresses, beds, household items and toys for the children.
