Wrecking Cincinnati, 7/7/10

2551 Norton Street, South Fairmount
DOB: 1909
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: Bulging and cracked foundation walls; defective siding, gutters, and downspouts; and a collapsing side porch. City barricade orders were issued on three separate occasions.

The house was condemned in April 2008, declared a public nuisance in November 2008, and razed by the City following asbestos abatement.

A criminal case was filed against the owner in 2007, but has gone nowhere.
