American Red Cross volunteers helped a Braintree resident whose public housing apartment caught fire Sunday morning, providing him with a hotel stay and other assistance.
The fire at 15 Heritage Lane – part of a complex owned by the Braintree Housing Authority – happened at about 11:15 a.m. and was quickly extinguished, causing no injuries, according to the Patriot Ledger.
One person was displaced by the fire, a representative for American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts said in an email.
"Volunteers provided him with emergency temporary shelter - a hotel stay, emergency funds for food, a comfort kit - which includes items like toiletries, and smoke packs - strong detergent that removes the smell of smoke from clothing and linens."
The complex on Heritage Lane sits on 6.750 acres and was constructed around 1972, according to assessors data on Patriot Properties.
