The Montana Red Cross is providing assistance to at least nine people displaced by the multi-building fire in Gardiner.
Red Cross volunteer responders met with clients, providing them with food and housing assistance, helping them replace medications lost in the fire and connecting them with mental health resources. They also will help those clients start a long-term recovery plan and help them transition into new housing.
The July 14 fire destroyed four businesses including apartments in those buildings.
Last year, the Montana Red Cross provided food, shelter and support to more than 500 people following a disaster, most of them home and apartment fires.
