Apartment fire victims in Sturgeon Bay received help Tuesday to get back on their feet after weekend blaze left 20 people homeless and three firefighters injured.
 
A number of non-profit organization and government agencies set up a "one stop shop" relief center to help people create recovery plans, fill out paperwork and receive disaster aid.
 
"You can imagine how this works on someone's mind, you know. The kids, they don't know where their kids are. Their pets are displaced somewhere. I mean they're at wits end what to do to recover and sometimes it takes quite a while," said Red Cross volunteer Terry Wesenberg.
 
Fire victims are also receiving food, shelter and clothing from the Red Cross.
