Fourteen adults and three children were displaced by a fire early Monday morning in the Bayview district.
The one-alarm fire was reported at 12:01 a.m. at a home near La Salle Avenue and Newhall Street and was controlled at 12:18 a.m., a fire dispatcher said.
The American Red Cross assisted the 17 displaced residents, organization spokeswoman Melanie Finke said.
“We went down to the scene and provided them with blankets and comfort kits,” she said. Comfort kits contain basic necessities such as toothpaste, a toothbrush, soap and a hairbrush, Finke said.
The Red Cross also arranged for a place to stay for those displaced by the fire.
“Because it was such a large number of individuals, we were able to put them in several rooms at a hotel,” Finke said.
