From the W.Va. Supreme Court:

GLENVILLE, W.Va. – All Courts in Gilmer County are open today despite the
State Fire Marshal’s decision to close the Courthouse Annex until the emergency fire alarm system is repaired.

The State Fire Marshall inspected the annex building after a small fire in an overhead light fixture on Monday, August 26. The fire was contained to that light fixture and no one was injured. Family Court and Magistrate Court are located in the annex while Circuit Court is located in the Gilmer County Courthouse.

Fourth Family Court Circuit (Calhoun, Gilmer, Ritchie and Roane Counties)
Judge Steve Jones will hear Gilmer County cases in the Calhoun County Family Court facility located at 378 Main Street, Grantsville.

Gilmer County Magistrates Carol Wolfe and Senior Status Magistrate Teresa Robinson will use the Gilmer County Circuit Court courtroom, offices, and video conferencing system in the main courthouse.

The annex is owned and operated by the Gilmer County Commission. The court system pays rent to the commission for family court and magistrate court space.
