American Red Cross Helping 10 People After New Haven Fire


Paul Shipman

The American Red Cross is helping 10 people – two adults and eight children – with emergency housing, food and clothing needs after an overnight fire on Norton Street in New Haven.

The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits, containing age and gender appropriate personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant, shaving supplies and other items a family might not have been able to gather in the rush to escape the fire. Children's kits include a stuffed toy.

American Red Cross disaster assistance is free of charge, a gift made possible by generous donations and the work of volunteers.
