Several families in Elizabeth have been displaced after a fire Sunday night ravaged their homes.
The families are being housed by the Red Cross at the Elizabeth High School gym. At least 70 people lost their homes in the fire on Smith Street.
“They’ve just been through the worst day of their lives. Not only did they lose their home, but they lost everything inside,” says Sheri Ferreira, from the Red Cross. “When something like this occurs, the most important immediate need is shelter and food and clothing.”
The Red Cross says case workers will work with the families to get them back on their feet. Members of the community who want to help can reach out to the Red Cross.
There are no reports of any injuries.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
