Cherry Point Making Do After Headquarters Burns

Cherry Point says it still doesn't know what sparked a fire late Saturday night that heavily damaged its headquarters building.

Air Station spokesman Michael Barton says the area where investigators believe the fire began is so severely damaged that it's not safe yet to enter.

Fire broke out around 11 pm Saturday in a building that serves as headquarters not only for the Air Station, but for the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing as well.

Marine Corps commanders spent all day Sunday meeting to to determine where to house people who worked in the headquarters building. Barton says everyone today was relocated to other areas on Cherry Point. He said the fire was "a nuisance, but not a show stopper."

Cherry Point says it's too early to say whether they'll rebuild or replace their headquarters building.
