The Lauderhill Fire Department in Florida hosted the party after Nicola Taylor's apartment and baby gifts were destroyed in the blaze.
"God is amazing," Taylor said. "This is more stuff than I had. Thank you."
Two days before the incident, Taylor's family and friends threw her a baby shower. All the gifts she received were destroyed in the fire.
"[The firefighters] were seeing a whole bunch of burned up baby items and it was very emotional for the guys, being parents themselves, it hit home," Captain Jerry Gonzalez said. They were compelled to do something. Something touched us about this family."
They collected donations and received everything from baby clothes to baby carriers, gifts and gift cards, and even a Tiffany necklace.
And they saved the best gift for last.
"The members of the fire department, the community, the people have donated. We were able to get you a new lease, a new apartment," González said as he handed Taylor the keys. "We've covered your deposit and a few months rent."
