Disaster Response – Naples Bath and Tennis Apartment Fire

Saturday, May 12, a fire at the Naples Bath and Tennis apartment complex displaced approximately 20 people. Thankfully, all residents were evacuated safely. The Red Cross worked with these families, providing lodging, food and clothing, referrals to our partners as well as providing emotional support. Red Cross worked throughout the day to keep the firefighters (approx. 50) hydrated and fed. The temperature hovered around 90 degrees as the crews battled the fire. We thank them for their hard work in fighting the fire and for helping all residents evacuate safely.
