Wrecking Cincinnati, 7/31/08

3834 Hillside Ave, Riverside
DOB: 1926
Died: July 2008
Cause of death: A one-alarm fire in December 2007 caused an estimated $30,000 in damage, including compromised framing and a collapsed roof. The house was vacant at the time of the fire. The owners did not show up for pre-prosecution hearings, meaning that it was likely abandoned. Because it was impossible to properly barricade the structure, it was entered into the hazard abatement program and razed by the City.
