Four-alarm Fire in Addison Displaced 17 People

Yesterday, the American Red Cross-Dallas Area Chapter was called to provide assistance at a 4-alarm fire in Addison. Volunteers immediately began working with the displaced residents on scene by giving out sweats, socks, tennis shoes and hygiene supplies. See more of the response

After completing an official damage assessment, the Red Cross determined that 17 people in six (6) town homes were displaced. Red Cross workers made sure each family had a safe place to stay and financial assistance so they could purchase groceries, new clothing and shoes, winter coats and other needed items.
