Two Carey families are being assisted by American Red Cross of Wyandot County following a fire at their duplex on East South Street Saturday afternoon. Both families received assistance for temporary shelter, food and seasonal clothing. Family members also received comfort kits containing personal hygiene items and crayons and coloring books for the children.

Red Cross Chapter Director Cheryl Wolfe and volunteer Disaster Responder Jennifer Garza responded to the call for help. The Red Cross will continue to aid the families as needed and assist in long term recovery planning with resources, information, and referrals to partner agencies.
