Kedron pools re-opened, fieldhouse remains closed

The two pools at the Kedron Fieldhouse and Aquatic Center in Peachtree City have been reopened while the Fieldhouse, including the gym and meeting rooms, will remain closed for the time being, officials said.

The fieldhouse was damaged by two small fires June 21 which set off the fire sprinkler system. Because of a failure in the fire alarm system, the signal indicating the water flow in the sprinkler system was not transmitted to the city's alarm monitoring contractor, officials said.

The fieldhouse lobby and pool-side restrooms are open and the phone line is working, officials said.

Repairs to the fieldhouse are expected to continue over the coming weeks. Crews have been working around the clock on the facility in an effort to get it back open as quickly as possible.

The two small fires were intentionally set and police arrested a Palmetto man who had access to the building because he worked for the company that provides janitorial services to the city.
