Twelve Displaced in Cranston Street Fire -- Red Cross Providing Meals and Lodging
American Red Cross of Rhode Island disaster volunteers were called to the scene of a three-story fire at 834 Cranston Street in Cranston last evening. Twelve people --- eight adults and four children --- were displaced as a result of the blaze.

Red Cross volunteers provided the victims -- all members of the same extended family -- with meals and hotel accommodations. They are expected to meet with Red Cross caseworkers to today to determine their long-term needs.

This is the 112th fire the Rhode Island Red Cross has responded to this year. The Red Cross typically spends $1,000 per family of four it assists. All Red Cross emergency services are free and provided through monetary donations from Rhode Island citizens.

To make a contribution to help the victims of this and other disasters, please call the Red Cross at 1-800-842-1122 or visit www.riredcross.org to make a credit card donation.
