Moultrie apartment building damaged by fire is repairable


An update Thursday on a fire that displaced 11 outpatients from a Moultrie behavioral health center.

Firefighters say the apartment building leased by Turning Point can be repaired.

No one was hurt by the fire started by a space heater in a bedroom in a downstairs apartment Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators and property managers met Thursday morning to discuss the future of the building.

"They were looking at options to repair the building. They have to meet with their insurance adjusters and access the damage, but everybody feels like the building is going to be repaired and reoccupied," said Fire Investigator, Justin Cox.

There are four apartments in the building. Every apartment in the building was damaged by water, smoke, and fire. Turning Point is still trying to find temporary housing for the residents.
