(Brattleboro, VT) — Several organizations and businesses are pulling together to help the 17 people burned out of their apartment homes in Brattleboro. Their three-story apartment building on Elliot Street went up in flames Wednesday afternoon, with firefighters from a dozen towns battling nearly 12 hours to fully put it out. The Vermont and New Hampshire Upper Valley American Red Cross set up temporary lodging for the families in a motel and is coordinating several area agencies to help as well. Whippersnappers, a child clothing reseller, is donating store credit for the children while Love It Twice, a consignment and resale shop, is accepting clothing donations for the fire victims.
