WATERLOO (KWWL) - American Red Cross volunteers responded to a fire at the Bell Air Motel on University Ave. Sunday morning in Waterloo.

The fire started just before midnight, and fire crews remained on scene until roughly 3 a.m. 10 rooms including half of the motel roof were in flames when crews arrived.

Red Cross Disaster Action Team volunteers met with those affected, and based on their needs, provided assistance including food, clothes and a place to stay.

The Disaster Action Team is a group of specially trained volunteers who respond to home fires. Red Cross case workers will continue to work with those affected over the coming days.
