Roughly 150 seniors who were displaced by a large blaze that consumed most of the Carrington Living Seniors complex early yesterday morning are being helped out by the Red Cross.
Nancy Beasley Hosker, a Red Cross spokeswoman, says two volunteer responders were mobilized at the complex near 106 Street and 40 Avenue around 5 a.m. yesterday.
Hosker says roughly half of all the residents in the complex will be staying with family and friends, while the rest will be moved to a facility owned by the same company in the Riverbend area.
Volunteers were on scene at the complex handing out emergency toiletry kits.
Fire officials say 18 units were dispatched to the blaze and there is no word on a cause or a damage estimate.
