The Muskingum Valley Red Cross is reporting there were two fires Saturday evening and now two families are homeless.  One of the fires happened at 6255 Virginia Road in Nashport.  The Red Cross says Justin and Britney Soller and their two children are now homeless .  Red Cross officials are helping the Soller’s with funding for food and temporary lodging.  The other fire happened at 913 Nancy Avenue.  The Red Cross says Jasmin O’neal and her four children are also homeless.  The Red Cross is helping that family with funding for food, clothing and temporary lodging.  The Red Cross says they are helping with three fires in one day and they are not a goverment funded agency — their primary funding comes from the good people of Muskingum, Perry and Morgan counties and the United Way.  If you want to make a donation you can by sending it to Disaster Relief Fund, American Red Cross, P.O.
