By WKTV News

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - We're told everyone made it out safely after a fire started at 708 Church Street in Herkimer. Friends of the family say Christmas gifts for two children were destroyed and the community is pulling together to help them out.

The home is badly damaged.

Relatives of the family tell us they went to the Walmart store in Herkimer to buy gifts to replace the ones that were destroyed and the manager of the store donated $1000 worth of items for the family and even kept the store open longer for them to shop around.

Donations can be sent 538 1/2 Lake Street in Herkimer.

No word yet on a cause.
