I walk early in the morning. Horrific,” said Marlene Millevolte. The tragedy is impacting even the youngest in Hartland. “I teach young students at my studio here in town and they were coming in from school after school, asking, ‘what’s being done, why isn’t anything being done?'” Millevolte said. the help of Pfannerstill and St. Charles Catholic Church held a vigil in Nixon Park. Dozens of community members gathered to pray, to sing and to mourn.”Just come together, show some hope, be a community and love each other. Letting these people know that we stand behind them and we’re not going to let them down , even if they were displaced. We’re like one big family,” Pfannerstill said. Pfannerstill said anyone who wishes to help them can make donations to the Village of Hartland, which they will split evenly among the survivors.

A week following the tragedy, Millevolte, with the help of Pfannerstill and St. Charles Catholic Church held a vigil in Nixon Park. Dozens of community members gathered to pray, to sing and to mourn.

Three families that lived in the apartment building were displaced by the fire. Pfannerstill said anyone who wishes to help them can make donations to the Village of Hartland, which they will split evenly among the survivors.
