The American Red Cross is helping nine people – four adults and five children – in two families after a fire that occurred earlier today on Maple Street in Killingly.

The Red Cross is providing temporary lodging and financial assistance for emergency clothing and food needs.

The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits, containing age and gender appropriate personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant, shaving supplies and other items a family might not have been able to gather in the rush to escape the fire. Children's kits include a stuffed toy.

American Red Cross disaster assistance is free of charge, a gift made possible by generous donations and the work of volunteers.
