BEEKMAN, N.Y. -- The American Red Cross said a Poughquag family was left homeless after an intense fire damaged their home during a fire on Saturday, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Beekman firefighters responded to the fire that apparently started in a bedroom at the home at 14 Home Acres Lane. The Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross is providing aid to the family, including temporary housing, said the Poughkeepsie Journal.

The family, which includes two adults and an infant and a 3-year-old, was also given stuffed animals and other needed goods by volunteers, added the Poughkeepsie Journal.
