Bradley Co. courthouse may be closed until 2018 after fire

CLEVELAND, Tenn. (AP) – A Tennessee county courthouse may be out of commission until February after an electrical fire sparked in its mechanical room over the weekend.

The Times Free Press reports that Bradley County Circuit Court Clerk Gayla Miller has begun efforts to move some courtroom operations to the Bradley County Judicial Complex, which currently houses the criminal court.

Miller says the Bradley County Juvenile Justice Center and the Cleveland Municipal Building will house other court proceedings.

The county still has to find somewhere for the 43 workers for the county clerk, trustee, assessor and other offices.

Davis says damage estimates are not available yet for the fire Saturday at the downtown courthouse.
