Kirsten Beaman, rural development employee with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, documents the fire damaged duplex at 1280 Hazel Ave. on Friday morning in Benton City.
The duplex caught fire Thursday night and displaced two families from the federally subsidized Cherryhill Villas farmworker housing project.
Officials estimate the damage at $250,000. No one was injured by the blaze.
One family was relocated to a vacant unit in the 48-unit complex.
The cause is still under investigation.
