Saturday’s freezing and windy weather made conditions worse for crews.
“It’s very hard. You’re moving slower. The water hits the sidewalk and it creates ice and it makes it more difficult and slippery. It’s just more difficult to work in,” Quinn said.
There are three units in the building. Multiple people have been displaced.MORE NEWS: Police Arrest 1 of 2 Men Who Allegedly Stole Entire ATM From Wayland Store
