Red Cross Has No Takers For Westclox Shelter

Posted by wlpo on January 6, 2012

Apparently people living around Westclox are willing to ride out the smoke at home.

The Peru chapter of the American Red Cross opened a shelter for neighbors of Westclox in case the smoke was too much to handle. Sarah Stasik of the Red Cross says no one stayed in the shelter so they’ve closed it.

The night of the fire, the Peru Municipal Building was used as a shelter as people were evacuated near the fire scene.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
