Yesterday, I wrote about a fire at the Jefferson County Courthouse. Click here to see that story. Now fire investigators and courthouse employees have had a chance to examine the damage and have found that some documents and artifacts were saved, but a majority were ruined or damaged, including marriage documents, deeds and death certificates.
Jefferson County Commission President Julie Berry said the county will be working with a state archivist to set up a task force to help with the document restoration process.
