OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma County Commissioners held an emergency meeting Friday afternoon to determine what to do with juvenile offenders living in Oklahoma County's Berry House after a problem cut off water at the facility.

Berry House is part of the Oklahoma County Juvenile Justice Center. It's a 42-bed facility that houses offenders under the age of 18. 

Berry House lost water Friday morning, leaving the residence with no drinking water, no showers, and no heat because the house is heated with boilers. It's not known yet what caused the water problem.

The commissioners held an emergency meeting at 2 p.m. to decide what to do with juveniles. They decided to move them to the Oklahoma County jail while crews fix the water problem.

Before the juveniles can be moved, a judge must sign the order. Once the order is signed, the county will begin transporting residents.
