The American Red Cross is helping a family of four after a fire today on Ashford Street in West Haven. 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.
