The aftermath of Sunday's events is starting to sink in as the shock wears off and people try to find the money to pay for burial services and medical bills.
People from all over the Sunshine State are donating to a fund set up by Florida's Foundation.
The money donated to the fund goes towards recovery for the victims, survivors, and families whose needs are not met by insurance or other funding.
Right now the death toll stands at 11 with three of the victims still unidentified.
The 11th person was found in the charred wreckage.
To help identify the victims, anthropologists were called in and were only given bone fragments and teeth to help identify those involved.
Officials recently identified Vontavia Robinson. He lived in Williston and attended Williston High School.
Right now there are 8 people from the wreck still listed at Shands.
When we talked to Florida Forest Services they said the investigator is still searching for the exact cause of the wildfire that caused the smoke.
