About 20 residents still displaced following fire

About 20 people are still displaced following a Sunday night structure fire that gutted several apartment units in Redwood City, according to the American Red Cross.

American Red Cross spokeswoman Jennifer Sturm said the organization is assisting the displaced residents with necessities like food, shelter and clothes.

Redwood City firefighters responded at 7:06 p.m. to the 12-unit complex at 950 Regent Court. The fire was under control by 8 p.m.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Fire officials said the fire gutted two apartment units, and a third sustained significant damage.

The damage to the building was estimated at $250,000 and the damage to the residents' possessions was estimated at $50,000.

One person suffered minor smoke inhalation in the fire, and another suffered a medical event not associated with the fire.

Anyone wishing to donate money to help the displaced residents is asked to contact the American Red Cross by clicking here. Anyone wishing to donate items such as clothing, household items and furnishings is asked to contact the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at (650) 366-6367.
