Red Cross assists in response to fuel spill

On the evening of Sept. 12, the Red Cross was called upon to help in the wake of disaster. Volunteers out of the Rutland area responded to a Rutland Town home where a family was informed by local fire officials that they would need to leave their home after an oil spill in their basement. The Red Cross volunteers addressed the immediate needs of the displaced family, providing lodging and financial assistance for food.
