(Oct. 5, 2012) Cesar Alvana has not returned to his rented unit at Bradley on the Bay since the Sept. 26 fire.
He was not there when the fire ripped through the third-floor units. His secondfloor unit sustained major water damage and he wonders what might be salvageable.
“I don’t know yet,” he said Wednesday.
He will not know the condition of his items, such as the television, stereo and laptop computer, until he gets a call from Royal Plus, which he said will be removing them from the unit and putting them in the parking lot.
“Maybe not good,” he said.
Until Royal Plus removes his items, Alvana said he won’t know what items he and his family might need. So far, they have received clothes and a crib because of Monica Hanshaw’s efforts to assist the fire victims.
Alvana, his wife, Rebecca, and their three daughters, ages 8, 5 and 5 months, had lived in their “beautiful” two-bedroom unit at Bradley on the Bay at 37th Street for three years.
After the fire, the Red Cross housed them for three nights at the Days Inn.
Now they are staying temporarily with his brother in West Ocean City. Alvana, a cook at the Captain’s Table and Outback Steakhouse, has applied to move into an apartment on 28th Street and hopes to find out next week if his application is accepted.
