American Red Cross Helping Four Adults After Bridgeport Fire


Paul Shipman

The American Red Cross is helping four adults with housing and food needs after a fire Friday night on Columbia Street in Bridgeport.

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.
