Wrecking Cincinnati, 8/25/08

2570 Seegar Avenue, South Fairmount
DOB: 1908
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: Structural failure, collapsing chimney, weathering. The lot was littered and overgrown, and the house was open to trespassers and was heavily vandalized.

The 512-square-foot house was condemned in September 2006. There was no contact between the City and the owner, meaning it was likely abandoned. A two-alarm fire in July 2007 caused further damage.

The structure was declared a public nuisance in January and was razed by the City. Four other homes on this block have been razed in the past year.
