Green Street Fire November 23, 2014

As many of you have already seen there was a big fire in our neighborhood last night.
a large apartment building on Green ST was totally destroyed and many other buildings damaged.
Our church was opened for those who needed a place to go and to use bathrooms. We also took coats and some snack food as well as getting a couple of cases of water to City Hall where the Red Cross was set up.
the building that was destroyed had 12 apartments. there are also a lot of older buildings very close together in that area. So the entire block was evacuated. We were lucky, all people seem to be accounted for, a few pets missing. If not for the wonderful work of many fire departments who answered the call we could have lost the entire block.
the Red Cross provided housing for those who needed it last night.  Today the work starts to find more stable housing for those displaced. 
The Church will be open for Prayer the next 3 days. If anyone is in the area I would welcome help in holding prayer continued in the Sanctuary. Other wise please keep all those affected in your personal prayer.
