Wrecking Cincinnati, 7/27/09

3750 Beechmont Court, Linwood
DOB: 1905
Died: May 2009
Cause of death: A one-alarm fire causing extensive damage to the entire structure, including the roof and siding, creating an unihabitable shell. Broken and missing windows allowed children and stray animals to get inside, and an open swimming pool in the back yard was identified as a neighborhood hazard. Assorted fire-related debris littered the property.

The house was condemned in October 2006, and a criminal case is pending against the owner. There is a lien on the property and more than $15,000 in back property taxes owed.

It was declared a public nuisance in November 2008 and razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
