Wrecking Cincinnati, 12/21/09

3211 Riverside Drive, East End
DOB: 1895
Died: May 2009
Cause of death: Heavy damage from a three-alarm fire in May 2008.

The building had been vacant for several years, but appeared to be undergoing renovations. A criminal case was filed against the owner, but was later dropped for want of prosecution and an inability to service the summons.

The house was condemned shortly after the fire and declared a public nuisance in December 2008. It was razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
