      Safety concerns shut down Macomb shelter

      Genesis Garden is a floating shelter out of Macomb.

      The launch of a local shelter is now on hold because of safety concerns.

      Genesis Garden is a floating shelter out of Macomb.

      The idea is that the shelter would move every night amongst local churches.

      The executive director of Genesis Garden told KHQA the Macomb Fire Chief hasn't okayed the shelter's permit because the churches do not have a sprinkler system.

      That's something needed in order for the shelter to stay up to fire code.

      Genesis Garden is now looking for other ways to get the shelter up and going.

      KHQA Multimedia Journalist Lauren Kalil will have more details on this Tuesday, so check back for updates.
