North Charleston, SC (WCBD)- Last Saturday morning, a family of three adults and five children were displaced after a fire on Durant Avenue in North Charleston.

The Red Cross sent disaster-trained volunteers top assist the family and provide temporary lodging as well as replacement clothing, food, and comfort kits.

On average, the American Red Cross responds to a disaster in South Carolina every four hours.

Last year alone, the Palmetto South Carolina Region assisted 7,100 people affected, the majority by home fires.

To help those affected by becoming a volunteer or donate, call the  Red Cross at 843-764-2323 or visit http://www.redcross.org/SC
