Crews brought in scaffolding this morning and prepared to climb the roof of Owens Hall, where they will begin peeling off shingles damaged in a weekend fire.
The work marked the start of efforts to
restore Winthrop University’s $6.5 million academic building, a process that
will keep Owens closed until the fall.
School officials hope
to have damage estimates in the next day or so.
Information technology workers must determine the extent of damage to computers
and other equipment in the three-story building, which opened in 2007. From the HeraldOnline.com.
