Rising from the Ashes

13abc's story

Toledo 13abc’s story on the Secor fire that took place early morning on April 12, 2014.

We assisted more than 50 people involved in a large fire at Secor Terrace Apartments on April 12 by providing emotional support, food, clothing, infant supplies, comfort kits, medical needs, and temporary shelter. Moving forward, we will continue to help the families with direct recovery assistance including support for security deposits at new rentals, bedding, and linens.

“You see hurricanes, tornadoes and fires and the Red Cross always pops up to help. You never think you are going to need that kind of help but I am so glad they were there for us. They sure have been wonderful.” – Linda Bliss, client.

Recovering from a disaster is never an easy process, but it doesn’t have to be one our clients do alone. Of all the disasters we respond to, home fires are the most common. It’s thanks to the commitment and generosity of our community that we can provide hope to these families.
