Residents Displaced by Apartment Fire Seeking Answers

People who lost everything in an Emmet County apartment fire say a promise to them is going unfulfilled.

Former tenants of the Crooked River Apartment Complex in Alanson tell 9&10 News the property manager promised to find them somewhere to live after the fire, but so far that has not happened.

The fire started at the complex early Memorial Day morning. All 16 units were evacuated, many of them have serious damage. Fire officials believe the fire started on a balcony. Everyone made it out safely.

The tenants who received assistance from the Red Cross say they will be without a place to stay Thursday morning.

To try and figure things out, the displaced tenants met at the complex on Wednesday to try and talk to the property manager about his promise. They say their questions were ignored.

9&10 News reached out to Woda Management who owns the complex, our calls are still unanswered.

9&10’s Breelynn Martin and Photojournalist Jacob Johnson have the story.
