Some Prophetstown residents said Tuesday they're hurting more after the news of the arrest in connection to Monday's fire than they were when they learned of the fire. So a Prophetstown church is trying to help ease that pain by collecting and giving out hundreds of donations.

Prophetstown United Methodist Church said it's gotten so many donations it's been able to host two dinners now for hundreds in the community – including firefighters and the demolition team. Members of the community at that dinner said just being together is already helping them move forward. 

Resident and church member Larry Stewart started holding a weekly community dinner at the church a while ago. But he said the dinner the past two days have been different. 

"I was praying that it would be a community effort," Stewart said. "It wasn't hard at all. The community just came together right away."

On Monday night alone, the church fed 239 people. Pastor Cheri Stewart said she believes the support is helping the community heal. 

The church said it will keep accepting donations as long as people are willing to give them.

It will also keep its doors open to the community to give out free bottled water to help people cope with the boil order.
