TERRE HAUTE, Ind. —
As far as the occupants of the apartment that burned Tuesday, “Our primary concern now is helping them get settled. They lost almost everything in their apartment,” Knerr said. “We want to support them; they are emotionally strained and very worried and concerned about what is going on and happened.”
With it being Homecoming Week at ISU, responding to the fire has kept students and staff “a little more busy, but we’re all pulling together.” The goal is to get the apartments cleaned as soon as possible so residents can return.
Some of the residents had small pets that included a rabbit and ferret. University Apartment residents are allowed to keep small, caged animals. The residential life staff worked to find apartments for all those who had pets, she said.
