The American Red Cross is helping three people after two separate fires yesterday in Woodbury and Bethlehem.

The Red Cross is helping:

  • One family – two adults after a fire yesterday on Magnolia Hill, Bethlehem
In each instance, the Red Cross provided assistance to meet the families’ immediate needs. Responders included: Art Hopkins, Joe Cozza, Claudia Berry, Cathy and Jim Tsacoyeanes.

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.
