LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (American Red Cross) – Disaster Responders with the American Red Cross in Arkansas provided care residents after an early morning blaze destroyed 24 units at the Village Square Apartments, 200 Lakeland Drive, Hot Springs.
Red Cross is providing support for food, clothing and critical medication for those displaced, with the addition of emergency stay in hotels for 14 families totaling 30 individuals. Casework will continue with the remaining 15 residents to meet their emergency needs.
"22 of the 24 units were occupied,' stated American Red Cross in Arkansas Communications Officer, Brigette Williams. "If there is a small silver lining, it's that the apartment management required renter's insurance, which will provide additional help towards recovery."
