Wrecking Cincinnati, 5/25/10

1513 Fairmount Avenue, South Fairmount
DOB: 1900
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: Framing, sheathing and siding deteriorating on right side of building; vandalism to the building interior; broken and missing windows; a bulging rear wall; and a defective rear porch and garage. The property also had been used for breeding dogs, possibly by a rental tenant.

The house was condemned in August 2008 and declared a public nuisance in December 2008. A criminal case was filed against its owner, who became responsible for it following the previous owner's death.

The structure was razed by the City following asbestos abatement. Criminal charges against the property owner were dismissed.
