Finger Lakes Red Cross chapter assists tenants of apartment building destroyed by fire in Corning


Losing your home in a fire is never something anyone hopes to have to go through, but the Finger Lakes chapter of the American Red Cross is helping make the long road ahead a little bit easier for some Corning residents.

A fire destroyed an apartment building on Park Avenue in Corning on Sunday, and eight people lost their homes and many of their belongings. The Red Cross has since begin helping the affected residents with expenses such as groceries, and are helping them connect with organizations that will assist them in finding long term temporary housing while they get back on their feet.
