BRIDGEPORT — The American Red Cross is helping four adults displaced by a fire Sunday in Bridgeport.

According to Bridgeport police spokesman Terron Jones, the fire was reported at a two-story dwelling on Dover Street around midnight Sunday. Jones said first units confirmed smoke and fire were showing from the second floor, and that the fire was quickly extinguished by initial units.

All parties were out of the house on arrival, Jone said, and the fire was held to one room. The Fire Marshals Division is conducting an investigation. There were working smoke alarms in the unit. No injuries occurred at this fire.

The Red Cross provided assistance to meet the family’s immediate needs.

The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits containing personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant; shaving supplies and other items a resident might need when suddenly displaced from their home by a fire. In addition, a recovery envelope containing information helpful to families recovering from a fire, including tips on cleanup; notification of important contacts; dealing with damaged items and more was provided.

Those affected will connect with Red Cross caseworkers in the coming days to work on a longer-term recovery plan. The Red Cross is able to provide assistance through the generosity of our donors and the commitment of our volunteers.
