Fire at Savoy Apartments leaves occupants without a home
YAKIMA, Wash. - People forced out of their homes are protesting at Savoy Apartments in downtown Yakima.
A fire broke out over the past weekend and people have been unable to return to their homes due to the damage.
Some of those displaced from their apartments have been staying at a local Red Cross emergency shelter.
Stephanie Katie, who lived at the apartments, said she'd like for building owner Aaron Stewart to pay for their motel expenses until they can go back to living in their apartments.
“I think that it's his responsibility to place us somewhere or help us with housing at least to be able to get back on our feet,” Katie said.
Some people Action News spoke with in the area said they have no idea where they will be staying for the night but are hoping they will be able to find shelter from the cold.
