Red Cross Assists Family Displaced By Fire

The Fond du Lac chapter of the American Red Cross continues to help out a family displaced by fire at the beginning of the week. Lisa Stanchfield of the Red Cross says they aided firefighters who braved sub zero temperatures to fight the fire at 394 Ruggles Street over several hours Monday. They also helped the couple displaced by the fire. A man and a woman living in the home were both taken to St. Agnes Hospital and later to a burn center in Madison. Now that they are back in Fond du Lac the Red Cross continues to follow up with them to see to their immediate needs. The two-story wood frame home heavily damaged by the fire has been condemned.
