On October 4th, 2012 one of the Westlawn Village apartment buildings was set on fire, leaving 100 tenants homeless, and causing 1.8 million dollars of damage. Throughout the night 60 firemen and 18 fire units fought the intentionally started fire. To date no charges have been laid and families have had to relocate.
The Edmonton Emergency Relief Society and Red Cross have been hard at work helping these families rebuild their basic needs, yet there has been a noticeable gap in resources for housing.
Mr.Knowbody of RC Sindicate is a tenant of Westlawn Village, and still vividly remembers watching as his apartment building up in flames. He was able to return to is fire damaged home after days of staying with friends.
Many of his neighbours were not able to return home due to the extreme damage. Help us to offer a helping hand to these good people by attending the 2013 Beyond the Blaze benefit concert.
