Sacajawea Apt. Residents Moving Out & Moving On

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.- NBC Right Now was first on the scene when a fire damaged the Sacajawea Apartments in Pasco last month. The Red Cross shelter has closed and the people of Sacajawea Apartments are moving into their new homes, but pieces of their lives are still inside the apartment building.

Now that the building has been boarded up and some electricity has been restored, the residents can see around their rooms. Up until recently the apartment doors were kicked open. Now the people working for the building owner say they have all the keys and once the residents sign a release form they can take dust masks and enter the building. But some former residents still think there is not enough being done by the owner.

"I'm trying to move my stuff out but I feel like I'm being rushed and I mean, after an incident like this you're supposed to be...where is the owner at? She's no where around," said Michael Belote, a former tenant of the building.

Some of the former residents have met with local attorneys to help file claims against the building owner. A few of those people have been handed no trespassing notices, which has made it difficult for them to claim their property.
