SPRINGFIELD IL – The Red Cross is
assisting a family of three after a fire started early Saturday morning. Just
before three in the morning a fire broke out in a home in the 11 hundred
block of East Miller Street
The house is broken up
into apartment style units and a fire started in one of those units. A family
of two adults and one child lived in that unity. Authorities say the amount of
smoke and fire forced the family to find alternative shelter.
The Red Cross is now providing food and accommodations for the family.
