American Red Cross helping victims of Monday's fire

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW)- The local American Red Cross Chapter is helping victims of yesterday's apartment fire in La Crosse get their lives back on track.

The fire left behind severe water and structural damage.

Volunteer Shirley Stinson, says the chapter helped 15 people with food, clothing and shelter. The victims are staying in a motel for the next two days. Stinson stated that shelter is not the only thing they provide. "The Red Cross is also there for support. It is a very traumatic thing that these people go through and we are there to listen to them. We also have health services and counselors available if that is needed."

The Red Cross will continue to offer resources as the fire victims transition to new housing.
