HARTFORD, CONN., January 29, 2014 – The American Red Cross is helping a family of two adults with emergency housing, food and clothing needs after a fire earlier today on Preston Street in Hartford. Red Cross team members Patricia Calcinari and Rebecca Johnson met with the displaced family.

The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits containing 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.
