RI Red Cross assisting North Kingstown
residents displaced by afternoon fire
American Red Cross of Rhode Island volunteers responded to a house fire Tuesday afternoon at a
single family home at 710 Gilbert Stuart Road in North Kingstown. A family of four was displaced from their home. The RI Red Cross is assisting the family with food, shelter, and cleaning supplies.
The Red Cross of Rhode Island typically spends $1,000 per family of four that it assists. All Red Cross assistance is free,
thanks to contributions from individuals and organizations. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on private donations to provide emergency assistance to Rhode Islanders in crisis.
