SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The community is coming together to help those affected by the fires on Whitemarsh Island Thursday afternoon, displacing families from four different homes.

Friday is all about recovering after this disaster struck the homes. Insurance adjustors and restoration guys have been out on the scene cleaning up.

WTOC talked to two homeowners and one of the neighbors. One is a Coast Guard family who doesn't have any relatives in the area.

The wife tells WTOC they need baby toys, books and she says she just needs a pair of jeans.

One of the other homeowners whose home was only partially damaged says any donations to these families is greatly appreciated.

There has been a large outpouring of support and you can help by donating at Molly McGuires on Wilmington or the Brandy George Salon in Savannah near Forsyth Park.

Rosie George from the Brandy George Salon says one of her clients was affected by this fire. She's offering free hair blowouts for any donations to the families and she says they've already started to get things for them.

"We got a lot of calls this morning so were expecting a lot of people this afternoon to come by and drop some things off. We had a few people come and drop off a lot of shoes this morning and a lot of children’s clothes so we're super excited about that,” said Rosie George, owner of Brandy George salon.

Emily Quigley, an employee at the salon, says one of her close friends lost everything.

"It's just priceless stuff that you cant get back. We want to be able to help, and just try and give them some sort of closure or something so they can move on and rebuild their life," she said. 

Any and all donations are being accepted, and if you are thinking of donating, keep in mind there are several small children who were affected as well. 

"They're wonderful people. They all are," Emerson said. 

Fire officials were just on the scene doing a routine check to make sure there weren't any hot spots still smoldering. We’re still waiting on the cause of the fire.
