The American Red Cross has set up a reception center to assist residents affected by a weekend fire in Sycamore.

The St. Albans Green apartment complex fire displaced more than 100 people.  

It's one of around two dozen fires the Red Cross has responded to in Dixon, Kankakee, and other locations throughout northern Illinois since last week. 

The Red Cross provided shelter, comfort kits and information about recovery services and health and mental health services to those affected by the fires.

Volunteers are continuing to provide help for affected residents of the St. Albans Green fire at Southeast School in Sycamore until 5:30 today.
