No Heat in the Bryan County Jail

Posted:

DURANT, OK -- The Bryan County Jail is without heat Saturday night. Deeda Payton has the story.

According to jailers, both the main jail and the auxiliary jail are without heat. They say they had an electrician out Saturday to fix the problem, but he said the system was frozen and they will have to wait for it to thaw.

In the meantime, they have put out space heaters in the hallways and have passed out blankets to the inmates.

However, a viewer emailed us saying they do not have enough blankets for all of the inmates and that the heat has been off for over 24-hours.

We will follow up on this story.
