Wrecking Cincinnati, 11/19/09

2495 Blaine Road, South Fairmount
DOB: 1890
Died: June 2009
Cause of death: Decayed interior framing on the lower level, mechanical systems in disrepair, numerous broken windows, gutters and downspouts in disrepair. The property required City barricading on numerous occasions. It was likely abandoned.

A new owner took over the property in 2006, with the house already having been ordered vacant by the City. Apparently, he began rehabbing it, but the project somehow stalled. A criminal case was filed against him in 2007, but was later dismissed.

The house was condemned in March 2007 and declared a public nuisance in October 2007. It was razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
