The Muskingum Valley Red Cross is assisting a family of four in Perry County, whose home was damaged by fire.

It happened yesterday at 8601 Prospect Street in New Straitsville.

John Dillon, Rochell Delong, and their two children-ages nine and six-were able to make it out of the home safely, but the fire caused smoke damage throughout the home.

The cause of the fire is believed to be electrical.

This is the fourth fire since the start of the new year that the Red Cross has handled.
