Southport Fire, EMS, and Police Departments, along with neighboring agencies, responded to a residential house fire off North Howe Street yesterday morning. Crews knocked down heavy fire quickly, but the fire has displaced several residents. The Red Cross has assisted with shelter, but Southport Cares donated gift cards to assist with any needs around food, clothing, or other needs. A recent recipient of a Southport Cares donation also donated some furniture to also assist the residents. We are thankful for all the donations from the community that allowed us to help these residents.
