Apartment residents frustrated after no heat, flooding, partial ceiling collapse

(WXYZ) - Residents of an apartment building in Pontiac are frustrated after dealing with no heat for a week, flooding and-- now--  a partially collapsed ceiling.

Residents of Edgewood Park Apartments tell us the building has had no heat since Saturday. Most of them are trying to keep warm using their ovens.

In addition to the heating issue, some of the old pipes in their units burst, causing flooding and a partial ceiling collapse.

Maintenance has been out a couple of times to try and fix the problem, but the crews have not made much progress.

Our crews were on the scene when other parts of the building's ceiling collapsed Thursday evening.

Firefighters are working with the Red Cross to try and find places for the residents to stay.
