Wrecking Cincinnati, 8/26/08

1026 Parkson Place, East Price Hill
DOB: 1925
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: Heavy damage from a three-alarm fire, deteriorating large sections of the floor structure and rafters. The windows were busted out and required a City barricade.

It was condemned in March 2007, followed by a series of unsuccessful attempts to contact the homeowner.

In January, the owner told building inspectors that she planned to repair the building. The house was declared a public nuisance later in the month, and the owner did nothing to have the building removed from the hazard abatement program.
