Red Cross Offers Shelter for Lolo Evacuees

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Some Lolo Creek Complex evacuees have taken refuge at the American Red Cross shelter in Missoula.

Red Cross officials said they have cots, showers and food at Christ the King Church, located at 1400 Gerald Avenue.

Volunteers said a family of three stayed at the shelter last night, and several other Lolo residents have stopped by.

Margie Lubinki, of American Red Cross of Montana said, "We're open no matter what, as long as the fire folks need us, and as long as there's evacuations in place, we stay open, so that even though some folks might not be staying here, we'll have food and whatever they need other than that, too."

The Missoula County Fairgrounds is offering shelter for livestock and other pets, but residents must provide their own food.
