Red Cross provides aid to five after Friday house fires

American Red Cross Volunteers are providing for the needs of five people following a number of Friday house fires.The three separate fires took place in Fredonia, Forestville, and Cattaraugus County. The victims will receive temporary housing, food, and clothing as needed.

The Red Cross has launched an initiative to help reduce the number of home fire-caused casualties by 25 percent over the next five years. They're asking every household in America to check existing smoke alarms and practice fire drills at home.
