Albany--  Some Albany radio stations used their airwaves to help several Albany families devastated by a recent apartment fire.

Nearly two weeks ago, a late-night fire damaged or destroyed about 17 units at the Hidden Oaks Apartments in East Albany. This week, Clear Channel hosted a fundraiser called "To Help Raise the Rent".

Through live-remotes from the apartment complex they raised more than $600. Organizers say every little bit helps.

"We had people from the community stopping by, had people emptying out their ash trays, people writing checks, people putting in twenty dollar bills and that was great," said Big Scoop with Clear Channel.

The money will be presented to Hidden Oaks soon. Clear Channel plans to hold another fundraiser in the near future.
