There has still been no word of what may have sparked a devastating fire that destroyed the historic Jackson Hotel in Aransas Pass.
Coastal Bend residents have stepped up to help those displaced by the fire that destroyed the historic Jackson Hotel in Aransas Pass.
People have been donating clothes, canned goods and other items to those who lost everything in the Tuesday evening blaze.
Many of those living at the hotel were staying there on a month-to-month basis, and to help speed up the recovery process, the Tri County EMS in Ingleside has teamed up with the Tri County Christian Service Center in Aransas Pass to help collect and distribute items for those in need.
"They left out of there with only the clothes on their back, and it's a horrible time in their life," said Steve Knight, Tri County EMS director. "We really would like to get support from the community."
The two groups will be collecting items until 11:30 a.m. Friday. You can drop off items at Tri County EMS headquarters in Ingleside, located on 1st Street, or you can drop off items at the Christian Service Center in Aransas Pass on 7th Street.
