WFTX — On Tuesday, local American Red Cross volunteers from the Florida Gulf Coast to Heartland Chapter responded to a home fire that occurred in St James City. They also responded to a mobile home fire on Dellwood Lane, in Bonita Springs.

Local Disaster Action Team members helped coordinate emergency aid to those affected. Fire officials say two people were impacted by the St. James City blaze, and one person by the Bonita Springs fire.

The Red Cross provided emergency financial assistance, health and mental health services, one-on-one support to connect people to available recovery assistance and will continue to provide additional support to the family to meet their disaster-caused needs.
