The American Red Cross of Central MA responded to two fires early this morning. A team of 7 volunteers went to assist families displaced by a fire at 31 Prospect Street in Webster. The team assisted six families (12 adults, 7 children) at the scene with comfort kits and food; five of the six were also assisted with shelter. The sixth family had alternate shelter. One family also received resources for clothing.

Another team of Red Cross volunteers dispatched to 34 Quabog Street in Brookfield this morning to assist those affected by a multi-unit fire. The team has already assisted six adults with shelter, bedding, food and clothing and will be meeting with two more adults later this afternoon to determine their needs. The Red Cross will be in contact with everyone displaced by the fire to offer emotional support and continued services.
