Red Cross helping families displaced after fire in Williamsbridge
Families displaced after a fire Monday received help from the Red Cross again.
About a dozen families were left without homes after an early morning fire ripped through a vacant building in Williamsbridge and spread to the building next door. Thanks to the Red Cross, the families were put up in a Bronx hotel for three days. Since their time at the hotel was up Wednesday, many of the families were scared they would be left homeless.
But once again the Red Cross came to the families' rescue. The NYC Housing, Preservation and Development says the Red Cross will extend the families' stay at the hotel. Also the HPD says it will help the families get new copies of important documentation and send an assessor to look at the damage at their building.
