An apartment fire in Port Allen early Saturday drove six people from their homes and into temporary housing provided by the Red Cross, a Red Cross news release says.
The blaze was reported about 3:45 a.m. at 250 N. 14th St., Nancy Malone, of the Red Cross, said in the release. Two of the four units in the building sustained heavy damage, she said.
The Red Cross is providing housing for the four adults and two children, she said, along with food, clothing and cleanup kits, based on individual needs.
The residents of two upstairs units are able to remain in their homes, Malone said.
Malone said the Port Allen Fire Department worked the fire. However, nobody from that agency could be reached for comment Saturday.
