Rash of Apartment Fires Has Houston’s American Red Cross in Urgent Response Mode

Just imagine returning home from work or school to find the fire department had responded to your home. Red Cross volunteers had a busy weekend participating in drills and responding to local fires, but on the morning of Monday, March 4, your American Red Cross, was called to respond to a multi-unit fire affecting close to 60 apartments.

Red Cross Disaster Assistance Team (DAT) volunteers provided drinks, snacks and the means to start the residents’ recovery. The American Red Cross opened a shelter at Copperfield Church, 8350 Highway 6 N, Houston, 7709 to help those who may need a place to stay overnight.

Your local American Red Cross helps at these types of fires multiple times a day in our community. But they cannot do it without you. Please visit the American Red Cross-Houston website to learn more about volunteering, and, if possible, offer some financial support to help with this and other types of disasters throughout our community.
