Stratford comes together to help fire victims

Posted: Updated:

A community is coming together to help those affected by the condo fire in Stratford last week.

Dozens of people lost their homes after flames tore through the building at 685 Success Ave.

It's been ruled accidental but the building was so badly burned that it may have to be torn down.

Mayor Laura Hoydick says the city's focus is to make sure displaced residents have food and a roof over their heads.

She says Stratford Community Services can help victims navigate the resources available to them.

A fund has also been set up by Sterling House Community Center to help the families.
