TULSA, OK -- The Red Cross has been helping victims of the Royal Arms Apartment fire since Tuesday.  It's providing a place to stay, food and clothes.  But, it says that wouldn't be possible without the help of donations and volunteers.

"That's how the Red Cross is able to do disaster work like we do and provide assistance to families after disasters, whether it's a single family fire, an apartment fire or a big tornado," said Nellie Kelly with the Tulsa Red Cross.

The Red Cross says the families in the four apartments destroyed had been staying elsewhere since Tuesday.
