Four adults and two pets escaped injury last evening when a fire destroyed their home at 8 Pleasant Street in Franklin, NH.
The American Red Cross Disaster Action Team provided financial support for food, clothing and temporary lodging to those affected by the fire. This group of volunteers, located throughout the state, are specially trained by the American Red Cross to provide disaster relief and emotional comfort to those in their time of need following disaster. They are available to respond at any time of day or night in their communities and surrounding towns.
