Wrecking Cincinnati, 3/22/10

3737 Hillside Avenue, Riverside
DOB: 1880
Died: June 2009
Cause of death: A two-alarm fire on April 10, 2006 due to a natural gas leak, causing $30,000 in damages. The structure had a hole in the roof (possibly cut during the fire), deteriorated steps, broken and missing windows, and severe water damage. Kids were seen going in and out of the property, and the house was littered with old food and animal waste.

The house was condemned in May 2007 and was declared a public nuisance in November 2008.

A criminal case against the owners is pending. It appears that the house was abandoned.
