NEW HAVEN — The Red Cross stepped up to help after a fire on Wolcott Street left five adults and six children in need of assistance Saturday morning, a release from the organization said.
No one was injured in the blaze, which damaged a three-story residential building, said Rick Fontana, director of New Haven’s Office of Emergency Management. An alert indicated that the fire occurred around 4:00 a.m., but the time has not been independently verified.
The Red Cross is providing both personal care items and recovery information with tips on handling damaged items, according to the release.
“Those affected will connect with Red Cross caseworkers in the coming days to work on a longer-term recovery plan,” the organization said, thanking it donors and volunteers for making its efforts possible.
