Red Cross fire under investigation

An organization that helps others is counting the damage done by an early Friday morning fire.

It broke out in the parking lot of the Red Cross facility on Newtown Pike in Lexington.

Two of its buses were destroyed and a third had minor damage.

A trailer hitched to one of the vehicles also burned.

It housed bedding and other supplies.

Firefighters are still investigating the fire, but they don't yet know a cause.

The vehicles were used to transport disabled people as part of Lextran's Wheels program.

Representatives with the Red Cross say the loss of the vans won't affect their service.
