Springfield’s Red Cross chapter has been busy in recent days assisting victims of fires.
Three adults and two children were displaced by a fire at a home on Peoria Road Friday morning. The Red Cross is providing assistance with food and shelter for the victims.
And the Illinois Capital Area Chapter assisted another victim from a separate fire later in the day. The agency has dealt with four fires just since Thursday morning, and has helped 20 people in the aftermath of a total of eight blazes during the month of June.
