CARMEL, N.Y. (AP) - The Putnam County Courthouse, shuttered for nearly two weeks following damage to its sprinkler system, could reopen as early as Thursday.

The Highways and Facilities department says the fire suppression system is being recharged and tested. If all goes well, the building will reopen on Thursday.

The Journal News (https://lohud.us/1d4g36b ) says the courthouse has had weather-related problems since the beginning of the year. A heating coil burst on Jan. 4, causing water damage on the first and second floors. Several days later, the sprinkler heads burst, knocking out the fire suppression system.

Court business was moved to the County Office Building and Veterans of Foreign War Hall during the repairs.
