The Red Cross has provided the temporary shelter for two families hit by separate fires today.

Tacoma Fire was called to a house fire at 820 E. 51st Street at about 4:40 p.m. A fire had spread through two rooms in the house, and crews were to put it out by about 5:50 p.m., Tacoma Fire spokeswoman Jolene Davis said. Investigators had not announced the cause.

The Red Cross provided shelter and other help for the mother and daughter who lived at the house, spokeswoman Karen Kim said.

Earlier today, a fire damaged a house at 4027 S. Junett St. and the Red Cross provided shelter for the father and son who lived there, Kim said.
