Eastern MA 09/21/12 Dozens displaced in Dracut fire

American Red Cross volunteers today assisted 36 residents displaced by a fire at 510 Merrill Lane in Dracut this afternoon.

Eight volunteers and one staff member responded to the scene and provided 16 families with emergency funds for food and clothing. Each person was given a Comfort Kit, which contains toiletries like toothbruses, soap and washcloths, and a small group of children were given stuffed animals.

None of the displaced families required emergency housing this evening.
