Tenants claim poor treatment after fire

BATON ROUGE - After an apartment fire forced dozens of residents out of their homes last week, they're now being told that they will have to quickly find a new place to live. The Savoy Plaza Apartments are located on Wooddale Blvd.

"The treatment is horrible," said one four year tenant who did not want to release her identity publicly. "During the whole time out there (during the fire), they didn't come out at all to see what's going on, didn't pass out water or anything."

She told News 2 she was escorted by police when she went to retrieve her belongings days later. Then residents received an email from management saying that reconstruction on the complex could take up to 12 months, and that they will only offer hotel accommodations until this Monday.

"The amount of time they're giving us to find a place to stay is the problem I have," the woman said. "Telling us to be out of the hotel on Monday. It's going to take people longer than that to find a place to stay. Luckily, I have family here. Some didn't. Where do they go?"

We reached out to Patrician Management for comment about the Savoy Plaza Apartments, but they did not return our calls.
