Wood Gardens Fire update
Red Cross volunteers and staff are at Wood Gardens Apartments in Hoover, providing casework and assistance for families with emergencies caused by this morning's fire. We've been serving meals to the affected residents throughout the morning, and plan on continuing that support through tomorrow morning.
So far, we've opened assistance cases on at least 10 households -- but do not have a clear idea about how many will need a place to stay. Some may choose to stay with local relatives or friends, and we don't yet know if Wood Gardens has vacant units available for the remainder.
