Md. County Detention Center Without Heat For Days

ELKTON, Md. (AP) — Officials at the Cecil County Detention Center say the facility has been without heat for more than a week.

Detention Center Director Maj. Bernard Foster says a boiler that heated the facility was taken offline last week, but has not been replaced. The jail, which has about 200 inmates, is undergoing a major expansion and renovation.

Foster says the boiler is expected to arrive next week and should be installed and running by week’s end.

Meanwhile, inmates have been issued extra blankets and sweat shirts and space heaters are being used.
