In a Tuesday story about the demolition of blighted homes in Decatur, Mark McCurry, a real estate agent, said he found young men living in one of the houses during the winter. He tried to find them temporary housing and said the American Red Cross wouldn’t assist the young men because they didn’t have identification.
Sheila Brazelton, with the American Red Cross, said the agency doesn’t assist homeless people unless they’ve been displaced by fire.
The Daily is glad to set the record straight.
