Red Cross Helping Families After Rockford Apartment Fire

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Several families need a new place to sleep after smoke and flames fill their Rockford apartment building.

Firefighters were called to this building on North Longwood Street just before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday for a fire in the basement. The fire ended up traveling to the first and second floors of the building as well. Everyone who lived there got out OK but investigators say there's too much damage for the tenants to go back inside. The Red Cross is helping those families.
