Hudson Malone still not 100%

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – It will still be a while before every resident can go back home to fire-damaged Hudson Malone towers.

As of about four o'clock Monday, people who live on the third floor of the west wing were allowed to return. The apartments on the fourth floor, where a fire started two weeks ago, still can't return.

This is the apartment where that kitchen fire began. It's been gutted. The rest of the apartments on this part of the floor sustained water and smoke damage.

It will take at least until the end of the week to repair them fully.  Property Manager Michael Allen said, "Well, it's been inconvenient for our residents, but we're trying to make it as comfortable for them as we can."

Folks who live on the fourth floor and in apartment 518, which is above where the fire started, should continue to check with the office at Hudson Malone to find out when their apartments will be available.
