Basically the Red Cross can help you for the first 24 to 48 hours. They normally will put you up for the night, give you a place to sleep a voucher to get one outfit of clothes for each member of your family and a hot meal or two.

You'll actually need to go and see social services for more help on this matter. You can also try a few local churches in your area and go online to look on FereCycle to see if anyone is giving away some free things you can use. They will be happy to help you out in this situation.

As for the fire I hope you had homeowners insurance because you will need it now to file a claim to either rebuild your home or find a place for you and your family to live now.
