Residents displaced by White Oaks apartment fire in Bayside able to retrieve some belongings
There's now a free option for residents to have some of their items saved if their apartment is accessible.
Katz Properties, which owns White Oaks Apartments, was able to go in and help clear most of the essential items for residents out of the first-floor apartments that were accessible. On Thursday, the staff was going through apartments on the second floor.
Residents are not allowed to go into the building themselves but have been pointing out things they need on the first floor through windows and porch doors. The hallways are not accessible so belongings were taken out through the patio doors.
Paul Davis is also there helping residents for a fee. Not all of the apartments are able to be accessed. There is no fee if the residents use Katz Properties to get their stuff.
