Meriden Fire Displaces Six
The American Red Cross is helping six people – four adults and two children – in two families after a fire earlier Sunday at an apartment building at 306 Britannia St. in Meriden. The Red Cross is providing help with emergency housing, food and clothing needs.
The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits, containing age and gender appropriate personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant, shaving supplies and other items a family might not have been able to gather in the rush to escape the fire. Children’s kits include a stuffed toy.
