Community organizations stepping up to help victims of Hogarth home explosion

FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - The Red Cross tells ABC12 as of Wednesday afternoon, they have assessed damage at nearly 40 homes in the area of Hogarth Ave.
 
Many community organizations sprang into action Tuesday morning following the home explosion on Flint's west side.
 
ServPro is just one of the companies stepping up to help those affected.
 
"A lot of people weren't home," said Servpro Fenton General Manager, Josh Ingersoll. "We didn't really care if they had coverage, we just kept rolling into the night to get people taken care of and their house secure."
 
The Red Cross is still assessing damage on Wednesday afternoon-- hoping to make contact with those affected.

"This happened at night and everybody scattered to have a place to spend the night and the problem were having is we can't find where you went," said Dick Beauchamp who does damage assessment for the American Red Cross.
 
"We're hoping everybody will come back. Come to St Pias," said Beauchamp. "Get your name and phone number on the list so we can assist you. We'll make contact and do a little bit of paperwork and see what we can do to help you."
 
The Red Cross is also offering help from counselors. 

"The people that live here, saw the events that night-- the confusion the pain. For all the people that live here, we have trained counselors that are professionals. They're at St Pias church right now. Just willing to sit down and talk. Talk you through what's going on and make you understand it's going to be okay," said Beauchamp.
