— Fire damaged a linen closet at the Salvation Army of Wake County shelter, at 215 S. Person St. in Raleigh, early Saturday, a spokeswoman said.

No one was injured when the vent on a commercial dryer caught fire, but the building was evacuated while firefighters brought the blaze under control.

The greatest damage was to a linen closet where sheets, towels, blankets and diapers were stored. The Salvation Army asked that donations of linens be dropped off at the Person Street center.

    From what I've read and seen, most shelters have single beds. I am sure your donation will be appreciated.
