Wrecking Cincinnati, 9/24/08

2572 Liddell Street, North Fairmount
DOB: 1901
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: Vandalism and fire damage, a severely cracked foundation, a deteriorated roof, gutters and downspouts, missing siding, and missing windows. The house was condemned in March 2006, having been vacant since at least 2004.

The owners did not appear for pre-prosecution hearings. Because the owners live in Florida and were being "blatantly uncooperative", the City chose not to pursue criminal action. (Great reason.)

It was declared a public nuisance in July 2007 and razed by the City.
