The American Red Cross South Plains Regional Chapter assisted a Brownfield family whose home was destroyed by fire earlier this week. Red Cross volunteers provided the family of six with food, clothing, and temporary shelter. The family told the Red Cross that the fire was caused by a blanket that covered a heating vent.
"We're deeply saddened by this family's loss," said volunteer Raymond Collins. "As we continue to work with those involved, we'd like to remind everyone to act now to prevent and prepare for home fires in Brownfield and the rest of the South Plains."
