FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (WWBT) - The Red Cross is helping more than 100 people displaced after a fire at the Madonna House, an apartment complex for seniors.

The Rappahannock Area Agency on Aging said in a social media post that no one was injured in the blaze on Monday night.

“The Fredericksburg and other fire departments and the Fredericksburg Police Department did a great job of getting people out of the building and across a major street to safety,” the RAAA post said. “And to all the residents who kept a smile on their faces through probably one of the scariest times of their lives, you all are the best.”
