WILLIAMSPORT - Cedar Ridge Children's Home, which suffered a major fire last May, opened its doors Thursday following about $1 million in repairs and improvements to the facility.
A building that housed a gym, recreation center and several classrooms went up in flames in an electrical fire May 14, officials said.
Six months later, school officials broke ground on a new facility along Cedar Ridge Road to replace the burned structure.
Thursday morning, local school and court officials were invited to see the new complex, which includes a recreation area, gymnasium and six classrooms, said administrator Dave Swacina. Also, 12 new baseball fields have been developed on the property, which encompasses more than 100 acres, he said.
