Relief Fund Set Up for Victims of 3-Alarm New Haven Fire

View Comments ()



    A week after the three-alarm fire that destroyed a popular New Haven pub and five apartments upstairs, the city is setting up a relief fund to help those affected by the blaze.

    Flames ravaged the historic building at 882 Whalley Avenue in the city’s Westville section, leaving nothing but charred remains set for demolition.

    The building housed Delaney’s Taproom and Restaurant and was home to nine adults and one child. Four of the 78 responding firefighters were hurt battling the blaze, but the mayor’s office said all 10 residents made it out safely.

    Now the city is collecting money to help the victims rebuild. The Community Action Agency of New Haven will manage the fund and distribute donations.

    You can make donations online through PayPal or mail checks to:

    Community Action Agency of New Haven
    419 Whalley Avenue, Suite 400
    New Haven, CT 06511
    ATTN: Adrienne Sanders/Delaney’s
