Wrecking Cincinnati, 9/18/08

1303 Ryland Avenue, Bond Hill
DOB: 1895
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: Severe fire damage leaving an empty, windowless shell with a failing roof and compromised structural members.

It was condemned in January 2006 and declared a public nuisance in July 2006. I believe a child was killed in the fire, so the City backed off on prosecution of the case.

The building was razed following asbestos abatement.
