The Oregon Mountain River Chapter of the American Red Cross was quickly on the scene when a Warm Spring family's home was destroyed by fire early Tuesday. The Red Cross Emergency Services Coordinator Bobbie Bourne says they help those in immediate need with essentials: “We provided rooms for them at Kah Nee Ta for three nights, which is on the reservation. So that gives them local housing. And then we also provided money; a Red Cross debit cars actually so they will be able to buy food and buy clothing and food." Bourne says three adults and five children were all affected by the fire, and the Red Cross was immediately available with counseling and the other support. She says that they have helped over 550 people with emergency support since January, and all their workers are volunteers and the support given is all from donations.
