Cape Crossroads Fire Victims Relocated to Temporary Shelter
The Cape and Islands Red Cross set up a shelter at a Hyannis Church for Cape Crossroads residents affected by an electrical fire.
A shelter at the Federated Church of Hyannis will house Cape Crossroads residents displaced by an electrical fire that stripped power from 28 units at the housing complex, according to American Red Cross Cape and Islands Chapter Communciations Director Kat Powers.
The Cape and Islands Red Cross chapter responded to the scene on Monday night. After meeting with the building's owner, the action plan to set up a temporary shelter for 30 to 60 residents who will be without a home for a month was put in place, she said.
The condo complex at 800 Bearse's Way in Hyannis is made up of several 30 unit buildings and only one building was affected.
Red Cross volunteers stayed overnight at the complex as residents were permitted to stay the night in their apartments. An Emergency Response Vehicle is on site distributing food and water.
