Wrecking Cincinnati, 12/15/09

1819 Forbus Street, South Fairmount
DOB: 1887
Died: May 2009
Cause of death: Defects to the gutters, siding, windows, and chimney causing water damage. The house had been vacant since at least 2004.

The elderly owner was in poor health and was unable to attend pre-prosecution hearings. He eventually lost the house to foreclosure.

The house was condemned in September 2006 and declared a public nuisance in September 2007. It was razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
