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.
