WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Residents have returned to a Warwick apartment complex to retrieve what’s left of their belongings after the building went up in flames early Saturday morning.

The fire broke out around 2 a.m. and destroyed at least one 12-unit section of the 48-unit building.

The Providence Journal reports the fire was ruled accidental on Saturday. It was caused by an outdoor electrical receptacle.

WPRI-TV reports players and families from the Warwick North Little League are organizing a donation drive for the residents. The league will collect gift cards, cash, clothes, toiletries, non-perishable food and toys.

Donations will be accepted Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Westside Field House in Warwick. Donations can also be dropped with the Warwick Fire Department.
