Irvin Cobb Damage Totals +$200k

Paducah, KY – The first damage estimates at the Irvin Cobb Apartments in Paducah will total at least $200,000 and could likely be more. Edgewood Management Property Manager Jason Decapio says 25 residents remain booked at the Thrifty Inn hotel. They're waiting for contractors to finish repairing damage from a ruptured water line among the buildings' second through fourth floors. The windows left open for days after a resident's death have been linked to freezing a fire sprinkler line which flooded the building.
