NORTHFORK – Residents of a condemned McDowell County apartment building are finally out of their homes.

All occupants of these buildings on Route 52 in Northfork are now out of their dwellings.

The buildings were condemned shortly after reports came in to the 911 center on April 21.

Sections of the structure were coming apart and failing down and several families were immediately evacuated, but other long-time residents stayed in their homes.

There were no reported  injuries due to the destruction and several McDowell County agencies are offering assistance to help those in need.
