Homeless camp for veterans closes

FOX 10's Courtney Griffin reports.

- Veterans say they were supposed to move out by December 17th, then the cut-off date was postponed until December 20th, but on Monday morning, the camp was still up.

The city of Phoenix says Camp Alpha near 19th Avenue and Hatcher violates city code, so now those veterans are looking for a new place to live.

"Some of them are going their own way, some of them have gotten into programs. My family hasn't figured out where we are going quite yet," said Erik Spergue.

Despite this setback, organizers say the camp will rebuild. It's just a matter of where and when.
