New London – The American Red Cross is helping three people from two families with emergency housing needs following a gas leak Thursday at a home on Jefferson Avenue.
Red Cross spokesman Paul Shipman said in a press release that the displaced residents are also being provided with comfort kits containing personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant, shaving supplies and other items a family might not have been able to gather in the rush to escape the fire.
Further information on the gas leak was not available late Thursday.
