BRIDGEPORT - While boards now cover the windows of the two Bridgeport homes that were engulfed in flames yesterday, one former resident wonders what will happen on Monday when the Red Cross no longer pays for alternate housing at the local Holiday Inn.

?My children lost everything,? says Jeanette Falcon. ?I?m devastated.?

Neighbors could do little but offer comfort to those who had to flee leaving their possessions behind.

No one was injured in the fire that began in the three-family house along Hanover Street, and then jumped to the house next door, but residents claim that most of their possessions are now destroyed due to the fire.
