A fire destroyed three separate three-flat apartment buildings in Stone Park Saturday, witnesses told ABC7 Chicago.



Residents said Sunday they were waiting to see if there's anything they can save from their burned out homes.

"It's horrible how much they lost, but as long as it wasn't any lives, then everything else can be saved in one way or another," Abigail Cano said.

The Village of Stone Park is collecting items to help the families who lost their belongings in the fire. Donations can be dropped off at the police department, located at 1629 Mannheim Road.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Only minor injuries were reported.
