The American Red Cross is asking individuals and companies to help it provide assistance to victims of house fires in West Virginia.  The organization will kick off a Heroes for Fire Victims fundraising campaign on Wednesday Jan, 1.  The campaign will run through March 30.

Red Cross West Virginia Region spokeswoman Krista Farley Raines says that the organization has helped about 750 families in the state affected by house fires this year.  The organization also helped 60 families affected by flooding or storm damage.  Raines says the Red Cross receives no federal funding and relies on donations.
