Building 4 was declared uninhabitable until it can be repaired or rebuilt. Austin Fire Chief Kusey assigned an AFD team to talk to Blg. 4’s residents, find out what they needed out of their apartments immediately, and go retrieve that. He said everyone would be able to go in and retrieve other belongings later today or tomorrow.
The ARCCT team set up in the office of Riverside Place. There were 11 empty units in Riverside Place, and the management put the people who had pets into them; Carol [Volunteer] said she’d open a shelter for the rest of the Blg. 4 residents who didn’t have a place to go.
There were no injuries – to people or pets; only one pet (a dog) didn’t make it out with her owner, and a fire fighter went in and got her out from under the bed where she was hiding.
