The American Red Cross is helping seven people – five adults and two children – with emergency housing, food and clothing needs after an overnight fire on Pearl Harbor Street in Bridgeport.

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.
