  • 20 people after a fire on E Main Street, Meriden
  • Six adults, two children after a fire on Walnut Trail, Danbury
  • Four adults, two children after a fire on Carpenter Street, Hartford

In each instance, the Red Cross provided assistance to meet the families’ immediate needs.

The Red Cross also provided a recovery envelope containing information helpful to families recovering from a fire, including tips on cleanup; notification of important contacts; dealing with damaged items and more. The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits containing personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant; shaving supplies and other items a resident might need when suddenly displaced from their home by a fire.

Red Cross caseworkers will connect with those affected in the coming days to work on a longer-term recovery plan. The Red Cross is able to provide assistance through the generosity of our donors and the commitment of our volunteers.
