Cambridge and Red Cross offer relief and support to fire victims

CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (WHDH) - The Red Cross and the city of Cambridge are responding to help the dozens of people displaced by Saturday’s fire.

A shelter was opened at the War Memorial Recreation Center for all the residents who were forced to evacuate. At the shelter, the Red Cross is providing food, along with medical and mental health services. State Rep. Marjorie Decker said neighbors are also opening their doors to those affected.

“This is Cambridge, we come together,” said Decker. “We take care of one another.”

Between 50 and 60 people were forced to leave their homes because of the fire. Officials expect the shelter to remain open all day Sunday.
