BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – The American Red Cross is helping three families – with six adults and eight children — after a fire Thursday on 5th Street in Bridgeport.
The Red Cross provided assistance to meet the families’ immediate needs and also provided them with comfort kits containing personal care items.
The 5th Street fire marks the third fire in the City of Bridgeport, with blazes reported on Godddard Avenue on Wednesday and Grand Street on Thursday.
The Red Cross also came to the aid of the 13 residents displaced in the Grand Street fire, which may have been intentionally set, according to the Connecticut Post.
A dog alerted the residents to the suspicious blaze, which caused extensive damage to the home, the Post said.
Smoke and flames were pouring out of windows on all three floors when firefighters arrived, the Post said.
