Church to host food, clothing giveaway for fire victims

JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - A church community is coming together to support Jeffersonville residents who were forced from their homes after a massive apartment fire.

The fire broke out Thursday afternoon at the Bridgepoint apartments.

Residents ran from their homes as smoke and flames quickly engulfed two buildings.

It took fire crews more than three hours to put the fire out.

To help the nearly 80 people who were unable to return to their homes the Jeffersonville Christian Church, located at 2101 Middle Road, is hosting a food and clothing giveaway from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday, April 18.

For more information contact the Jeffersonville Christian Church by calling (812) 283-9006.
