BRIDGEPORT - A woman displaced by a fire in Bridgeport is concerned about where her family will live.

The fire happened Monday at a multifamily home on Wilmot Avenue. Mami Mayes is one of 11 people displaced by the fire. Mayes, who says she's lost virtually everything, is wondering where she will stay next because her time at a local hotel paid for by the Red Cross is up.

Mayes says she doesn't know where she will take her two daughters and granddaughter.

Members of a nearby church say they're going to see what they can do to help.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for those looking to donate to help the family.
