American Red Cross Helping Three Families after Friday Night Fires
The American Red Cross is helping four people, one adult and three children, after a fire to their family home Friday night on the 5000 block of 61st Street in Milwaukee.
On Friday night, the Red Cross also helped after a fire in Kenosha and a fire in Racine. A fire in Racine on Jackson Street displaced four adults and four children. The tenant heard a loud noise and saw fire near a rear window. He alerted his family and they were able to get out by themselves.
A fire crew had to stop the resident from going back in to gather the family's cats. The fire has an estimated loss of $20,000 for the house and $2,500 in contents. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
A fire on 46th Street in Kenosha impacted one adult.
The Red Cross is providing financial assistance for items such as emergency food, shelter, and clothing.
