WISE COUNTY, VA (WJHL) – The Wise County Courthouse will open on regular schedule this Friday, November 18th. Officials say repairs have been made to the building’s roof exhaust and the air quality inside the building has been tested.
Courthouse officials had to close the building early around 2:45 p.m.on Wednesday due to a roof exhaust motor failure.
As a result, sewer gas leaked throughout the courthouse.
The Wise Fire Department and Wise Regional Hazmat crews were called in as a precaution. Ultimately, employees were sent home.
