Emergency Social services has placed the Red Cross in charge of handling any of the residents' outstanding needs.

Those residents are asked to meet at the Salvation Army Church at 1480 Sutherland Avenue today from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Later this evening Emergency Social Services will be meeting at the church with residents from the Legacy apartment building - also left homeless after yesterday's fire broke out just blocks away from the Bristol apartments.
