WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - More people than originally thought need help after a fire at a Massena apartment complex.

The American Red Cross says another 12 people have come forward - needing assistance - after Sunday's fire at 235 Center Street.

That brings the total number of people affected by the fire to 32, according to the Red Cross.

The fire was ruled accidental after it started in a downstairs apartment. There were 8 apartments inside.

The Red Cross relies on the generosity of local donors to help families prepare, respond and recover from disasters in the north country. Visit redcross.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS to donate to Disaster Relief and help people affected by disasters.
