Walkisha-The Walkisha Fire Department has ordered the evacuation of a six-story condominium tower near Carroll College.

The 48-unit Horizon West Condominium Building was considered uninhabitable due to some pillar compromises that were inspected by structural engineers.
The Salvation Army of Wakisha is helping residents find temporary housing. Residents evacuated on Thursday night were sent to the Baymont Hotel for temporary accommodation.
The fire department has told TMJ4’s news partners that it has begun to receive complaints about the condition of the building until June 2020. In October 2021, the Horizon West Condominium Association began removing balconies, at which point further structural problems were discovered.
A total of 65 people were evacuated from the building and 23 rooms were provided as temporary housing by the Salvation Army. The Red Cross has also appeared.
