BIRDSEYE RTC: “Early Tuesday morning, May 12, 2015, we received a call that our vacant building 2 miles north of the RTC was on fire, and it quickly became a total loss. We are saddened by the loss of the building – one that we had remodeled and planned on expanding into within 2 weeks. Mostly, however, we are profoundly grateful that the building was unoccupied, and at no time were any of our residents or staff in any danger.
We wanted to ensure that everyone knew that the RTC was never in harm’s way. Because of the proximity, and the similar names, sometimes Birdseye RTC is confused with the Birdseye Boys Ranch – an older, closed program that used to occupy the building that burned down. Several news stations have reported on this fire as being the Birdseye Boys Ranch, and we wanted to clarify the situation. We hope this information helps to calm any fears or concerns as to the safety of our residents and staff.
We will continue to move forward with the good work of the RTC, and plan the next steps for the property we just lost in our efforts to expand the program.”
