Posted: Updated:

An overnight fire destroys one business, and damages many others.

The fire happened at Alpine Laundry and Dry Cleaners in Gaylord.

The fire, smoke, and water also created significant damage in other businesses in the same strip mall.

Toys for Tots and United Way were storing donated toys and clothes in a store front behind the cleaners. Over $20,000 worth of clothing and toys were damaged and unsalvageable.

If you would like to help replace some of those items:

-Make checks out for clothing to United Way, make checks out for toys to Toys for Tots.

-Send them to United Way 116 E. Fifth, Gaylord, MI 49735
