Donation fund established for fire victims

PLATTSBURGH — A donation fund has been established for three of the victims of Wednesday’s fire on Goff Avenue.

The blaze destroyed an unfinished apartment and caused smoke and water damage to the other two apartments, Plattsburgh City Fire Department Assistant Chief Randy Stone said.

Travis Rasco immediately left Perkins Restaurant & Bakery, where he works, when he heard about the fire. He is the boyfriend of Chelsea Bradt, whose son, Aiden Collins, smelled the smoke Wednesday afternoon.

“Travis is a great guy, hard worker and would do anything for anyone,” Perkins Restaurant & Bakery Food Production Manager Jason Kozilsky said in an email. “Our hearts go out to all the victims affected by this fire. This type of thing always happens to the nicest people.”

Monetary donations for Rasco, Bradt and Collins will be accepted until May 15 at the front desk of the Comfort Inn & Suites on Route 3 in Plattsburgh.

Checks can be made out to the Comfort Inn, with “fire victims” noted on the memo line.

For further information, contact Kozilsky at 561-6222.
