WESTERLY — Two residents of an apartment at Apache Drive are receiving help from the American Red Cross after their home was damaged in a kitchen fire Tuesday evening.
According to updated information provided on Thursday, the two victims, a man and a woman, were given immediate aid and comfort kits containing personal care items as well as a recovery envelope containing information helpful to families recovering from a fire.
The two were reported to have suffered from smoke inhalation. They were displaced Tuesday after an accidental stove fire caused significant damage to their kitchen. Red Cross staff members said Thursday that they would be working with the two in the coming days to develop a long-term recovery plan.
