GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The American Red Cross of the Western Carolinas said the organization is in urgent need of donations and volunteers after Disaster Action Teams responded to six house fires in the Upstate and parts of western North Carolina over the weekend.

Red Cross officials said these fires displaced 13 adults and five children, to whom volunteers on-scene gave financial and emotional support.

Officials said the number of people from our area who the Red Cross has served in the last nine months is 19% greater than the total number of people helped during the entire year in 2013.

You can donate or learn more about volunteering with the local Red Cross by going to www.redcross.org or by calling 864-271-8222.
