JENNINGS, MO (KTVI)-- Marquita McIntyre says it`s been a rough 17 days in her new Jennings home on Sapphire Avenue. The first three days were fine then suddenly things went downhill. There are problems with the electricity, furnace and more. The mother of four wants out of her 1 year lease.
"As of today, me and my kids have no use of water, no use of heat and we cannot use the bathroom shower due to the basement is being flooded. Everything that comes from upstairs goes downstairs to the basement. There`s no outlet for the water to leave the house. It smells in here and my daughter gets sick," said McIntyre.
Documents say the property is run by an O`Fallon rental company. We tried to reach them by phone but there was no one available. FOX 2 did not name the rental company, because we are still waiting for a response. We will follow-up with the company as soon as possible.
