An organization that helps out folks in our region is now in need of help.
Since January the American Red Cross of Northeast Tennessee has seen a 20 percent increase in the number of house fires over this time last year. That's putting a burden on current finances used to help those in need.
The Red Cross is always there to help out when fire victims have no place to turn to.
The Red Cross of Northeast Tennessee helps out folks in 11 counties throughout our region.
