May 31, 2011 Full story: Utica Daily News 60

Jackie Maida awoke with terror in the middle of the night May 7 to her boyfriend's shrieking sister at the bottom of her staircase, the sickening smell of smoke and the heat of raging flames in her Herkimer apartment.

Probably they should not be smoking. Benefit will surely free up some of their own money so they can buy more cigarettes. they are not getting a dime from me. First, try to minimize your expenses. Quit smoking, cut the booze if you drink, don't buy name brand products, etc. Once all this is done and they still can't make ends meet because of the fire, then maybe I'll think about it. But giving any money to people that will spend it like that is not right.

Jenesia how long you gonna use your surgery as an excuse, for not working ? You are a drug using drug dealing felon. People don't want to go to the benefit just because of you. No one wants to give their hard earned money to someone who doesn't even take care of her own kids. Your kids didn't lose everything because all of their stuff is at your mothers. The only reason I know that, is because I was trying to get things together for your kids after the fire. I was told by many including the school that they don't even live with you. It is sad that a lot of people are not going just because of you. The other families that have children that can use the help will not get it. So why don't you just turn your amount over to the kids and walk away. You are a low life scum bag who thinks the world owes you something. Get off your fat ass and get a job stop living off tax payers money. As for you not partying I call bull on that you smell like a walking bong. Get a life you loser.

Jenesia, Guess this person has got your number. Why go on with the poor me additude. You should be asking the other families for forgivness for starting the fire in the first place. Maybe you need to get that job and pay for the things you burned up of those lil kids. It would be a good start on your part.

so get real: if you do not want to go to the benefit because Of Janesia, then step up to the plate and get ahold of the other families and help them out. Put your money where your mouth is. Just because you do not want to help her, the rest should not suffer.

I have been helping the other families since the day after the fire. So STFU. Believe me I have put a lot of money out there for both the families with the children.

isn't this what homeowner's insurance if for? Or renter's insurance? I bet they wish they had bought that instead of 15 packs of cigarettes. You make your bed you have to sleep in it. The fire was a tagedy, yes. But asking for money after the fact is a travesty. Buy insurance. let this be a lesson for everyone.

I cannot even believe people would turn such tragedy into such hatred. Just because people have loving n caring people willing to help them there's a problem? Obviously they r kind loving people if others r willing to donate their time n money for them. How ignorant are some people. Peoples lives could have been lost that night n may I add they even lost a dog. Obviously the ignorant person who would post such hate is a miserable lowlife who prob has no friends n no life to be all up in their business. Get a life! Jackie n her family r wonderful people. Karma always shows her face n it will come to those who judge.

the ignorant comments on here r exactly what i expect from shadowy cowards that will never stand before me, or receive a fraction of the pain we have all suffered together. This tragedy was very trying on my family and i am so thankful 4 the help and support everyone in this community has given to everyone that was hurt by this terrible event.2 the families that have helped my children with anything thus far i truly thank you from the bottom of my heart. I pray i get the chance 2 somehow repay each and every one of you. For all of the scumbags out there posting these terribly slanderous posts about us I pray for a chance meeting in person, have fun checking your six, the element of surprise can be devastating.
