Fire Safety

Shelter Location:

Chinese Community Center

9800 Town Park Drive

Houston, TX, 77036

The American Red Cross in the Houston Area was on the scene this morning of a large apartment fire at the Greyfield Apartments. Nearly 16 homes were affected early this morning at 6:30a.m. affecting more than 20 individuals on this cold and chilly day. Thanks to your continued support emergency assistance was provided by our volunteers for food, clothes, shoes, and season garments to help them with the cold weather. 

At this time, we have opened a shelter thanks to the Chinese Community Shelter who has made their facility available. Residents affected will have the option of laying their heads at night at a warm and quiet location for the night to help them on a road to recovery.

We will provide updates below when we know more:
